KESKETS, HENRY, Boston, by w. Ruth had Henry, b. 3 May 1656. 

KETCHAM, EDWARD, Ipswich 1635, freem. 9 Mar. 1637, may reasona. 
be thot. progenit. of all of the name, in our country, and therefore I 
regret the more that we are ign. of the circumstances of his migrat. and 
subseq. resid. By conject. it seems to me, that EDWARD of Strat 
ford, wh. d. bef. 1678, was his s. whose d. Rebecca m. 14 Feb. 1678, 
Thomas Taylor of Norwalk. An Edward K. m. Mary, d. of Richard 
Harcutt, but prob. he was of L. I. yet may have been the Stratford man,

Nathaniel, b. 23 Jan. 1680; and Sarah, 19 Feb. 1672; was in town 
serv. 1701. SAMUEL, Newtown, L. I. 1655, prob. br. of John, was of 
Setauket, freem. of Conn. 1664, and with Edward, wh. may, also, have 
been br. at Huntington, 1672. 

KETTLE, JOHN, Gloucester, by w. Eliz. d. of the first William Allen 
of Salem, had Eliz.-b. 15 Feb. 1658; Mary, 5 Mar. 1660; Samuel, 2 
Apr. 1662; and James, 20 Mar. 1665. Prob. from him is deriv. the 
name Kettle Cove at the adjoin, town of Manchester. JOHN, Charles- 
town, eldest s. of Richard of the same, was, perhaps, of Portsmouth 
1663. He m. first, Sarah, d. of Edmund Goodenow, had John (wh. m. 
11 Sept. 1688, Abigail, d. of Richard Austin, and d. at C. 17 Mar. 1691, 


aged 30) ; Sarah, b. in Sudbury, 8 Mar. 1663 ; and Joseph. He had a

away from Lancaster in 1676, says Frothingham, 82 ; and by her had 
only Jonathan, b. at L. 24 Nov. 1670. JONATHAN, Charlestown 1677, 
youngest br. of the preced. m. 30 Mar. 1676, Abigail, d. of James 
Convers, wh. d. 25 Jan. 1691, aged 33, had Jonathan, b. 1677, wh. d. 
soon, and he d. 18 Dec. 1720. His other ch. Ann, b. 1679 ; Jonathan, 
1681 ; and Abigail, 1684, were bapt. 29 Mar. 1685, when he join. tG 
the ch. ; and he had aft. James, 1686 ; and David, 1689, d. the same yr. 
JOSEPH, Charlestown, elder br. of the preced. freem. 1670, m. 5 July

His s. Richard d. 7 Dec. 1690; and his w. d. 15 Sept. 1693; he was 
chos. deac. 1695; m. for sec. w. Dorothy, wid. of Thomas Hett, wh. d. 
11 Dec. 1710, in her 60th yr. and he d. 5 Apr. 1711. NATHANIEL, 
Charlestown, br. of the preced. by first w. Hannah, m. 13 June 1669,

becca, 30 Jan. 1687; Rachel, b. 10, bapt. 14 Apr. 1689; Union, 15 
Mar. 1691 ; and Richard, 10 Dec. 1693. He had three others, wh. d. 
bef. bapt. was one of the constables, 1690, and d. 1723. PETER, came 
in the Abigail, 1635, aged 10, from London ; but who can tell, whether 
he grew to manhood, where he liv. wh. he m. or when he d. ? RICHARD, 
Charlestown 1633, butcher, freem. 4 Mar. 1635, by w. Esther, d. of 
Samuel Ward, had Hannah, bapt, 29 Oct. 1637, m. 21 Jan. 1657, John

Samuel, 19 Nov. 1642; Nathaniel, 11 Oct. 1644; Jonathan, 1646. 
Perhaps we may doubt the ch. rec. of Budington, 247, of the date, 
25 July 1 633, giv. the adm. of " Richard Kettle and Esther his 
w." as a modern interpolat. in its latter clause, bee. the Boston ch. rec. 
of 26 Jan. 1634 has this entry, "Esther Ward, our br. Atherton Hough s 
maid scVv." for evid. of her adm. and the dism. on 17 July 1642 reads, 
" Our sis. Esther Ward, now w. to Richard Kettle of Charlestown hath 
letter of recommenda. gr. unto her to the ch. at C." Possib. he had two 
ws. nam. Esther, but it is less prob. than that the Charlestown ch. rec. 
was enrich, with a postlimin. addit. It must always be rememb. that we 
have not orig. ch. rec. of early yrs. in either Boston or Charlestown ch. 
but only copies, made prob. betw. 1650 and 1670, of both. He was usu- 


ally call. serg. and d. 28 June 1G81, aged 71. Esther, his w. d. 2 or 5

is seen at LovewelPs fight, in Hoyt s Antiq. Researches, 218, 274; and

See Scott. It is said, that two of his s. Thomas and William, were k. 
by the Ind. in 1675 ; but I suppose Caleb was one. A William K. of 
capt. Oliver s comp. was wound. 19 Dec. 1675, in the gr. battle of 
Narraganset, but he was of Boston, and serv. as substitute for his master, 
John Clear. An Eliz. K. aged 13, was passeng. in the same sh. with

1656; Abiah m. a Boardman, and she and three ch. are refer, to in his

Blessing, from London, 1635, aged 21, in comp. with William Yassall, 
unit, with the ch. 25 Feb. 1638, but did not rem. next yr. with the

LIAM, Salem, came from London in the Abigail, 1635, aged 28, freem. 
25 May 1636, wh. is inconsist. in trifling degree with Felt, wh. says he

on 25 Dec. 1636 ; John, 1 Nov. 1638 ; and Deliverance, 31 Oct. 1641. 
In his case, we find not the w. in the valua. list of ch. mem. as was 
commonly the much more natural occurr. but he seems to have been the 
superior polemic, if not devotee ; as, in the antinom. perversity of 1637, 
he was one of the five men in S. requir. to be disarm, for the public 
safety ; and in the more violent ragings of spiritual insubordin. 1659, his 
Christian kindness to the Quakers expos, him to whip, and banishm. 
From the latter he was restor. on repent. 1661. WILLIAM, Isle of

was a farmer; had John, b. 24 Jan. 16GG; James, 28 Mar. 1668; 
Daniel, 23 July 1670; Jonathan, 1674, d. 1696; and Benoni, 1677, 
posthum. for the f. d. 18 Oct. 1676. Much do I regret, that of those 
five s. onr informal, is confin. to JOHN, Billerica, s. of the preced. m. 3 
Aug. 1685, Hannah, perhaps d. by sec. w. of William French, had six s. 
and five ds. and d. 27 Apr. 1714. He was, says Farmer, the first of 
the fam. with that prefix, Dr. wh. has since been so freq. with his 
progeny, of wh. three at Harv. and nineteen at other N. E. coll. had 
been gr. in 1834. 

KXAPP, AARON, Taunton 1643, may have been f. of Eliz. wh. m. 17 
Feb. 1674, Nicholas Stoughton ; and beside had Mary, bapt. at Rox- 
bury, 20 Nov. 1659; and he d. bef. 1676. Baylies, II. 267, 278. 
CALEB, Stamford, s. of Nicholas, freem. 1670, made his will 11 Dec. 
1674, d. soon. He names w. Hannah, and ch. Caleb, wh. was b. 1661 ; 
John, 1 664 ; Moses ; Samuel ; Sarah ; and Hannah. JAMES, Water- 
town 1652, s. of William the first, b. in Eng. m. Eliz. d. of John 
Warren, had Eliz. b. 21 Apr. 1655; and James, 26 May 1657, wh. d. 
26 Sept. foil. In the autumn of 1671, at Groton, where he then liv. his

is good for any thing. JOHN, Watertown, br. of the preced. m. 25 May 

1660, Sarah Young, had John, b. 4 May 1661 ; and Sarah, 5 Sept. 
1662 ; and sev. others, for his will of 22 Jan. 1696, pro. 27 Apr. foil, 
tho. it names not either of these, wh. were, perhaps, d. ment. wid. Sarah, 
and ch. Henry, Isaac, John, Daniel, and Abigail. JOHN, Taunton, m. 
7 Oct. 1 685, Sarah Austin. Possib. he was s. of the preced. JONA 
THAN, Fairfield, s. of the first Roger, d. young, for his inv. is of 1 Feb.

Oct. 1684, leav. ch. Hannah, aged 25 ; Joshua, 22; Joseph, 20 ; Ruth, 


18; Timothy, 16; Benjamin, 10; Caleb, 7; Jonathan, 5. His wid. m. 
John Bowers. MOSES, Greenwich 1670, br. of the prececl. prob. 
youngest, but perhaps was only a Id. holder, and never liv. at G. but at 
Stamford as early as 1667, and there his f. gave him Id. by his will ; m. 

a. 1669, Abigail, d. of Richard Wescoat. Whether he had ch. I am not 
advis. but he was liv. certain, at S. up to 1701, perhaps later. NICHO 
LAS, "Watertown, may have come in the fleet with Winth. and Saltonstall 
1630, by w. Elinor had Jonathan, wh. was bur. 27 Dec. 1631 ; Timothy, 

b. 14 Dec. 1632; Joshua, 5 Jan. 1635; Caleb, 20 Jan. 1637 ; Sarah, 5 
Jan. 1639; Ruth, 6 Jan. 1641; and Hannah, 6 Mar. 1643; rem. to

Aug. 1658, and he m. 9 Mar. foil. Unity, wid. of Peter Brown, wh. had 
been wid. of Clement Buxton ; d. Apr. 1670. His will of 15 of that

Hannah, Lydia, and Ruth. Sarah m. 6 Sept. 1667, Peter Disbrough; 
and Ruth m. 20 Nov. foil. Joseph Ferris. ROGER, New Haven 1643-7, 
Fairfield 1656-70, and prob. later, had made his will 21 Mar. 1673, 
nam. w. Eliz. and ch. Jonathan, Josiah, Lydia, Roger, John, Nathaniel, 
Eliz. and Mary, some of wh. were minors, and his inv. is of 20 Sept. 
1675. ROGER, Fairfield, s. of the preced. d. 1691, but no acco. is 
found of his fam. THOMAS, Sudbury, m. at Watertown, 19 Sept. 1688, 
Mary, d. of John Grout, and d. beyond sea, leav. wid. and ch. Sarah, aged 
9 yrs. and Mary, 6, when admin, was issu. 28 May 1697. * TIMOTHY, 
Stamford, s. perhaps eldest, of Nicholas, rep. for Rye 1670, was of 
Greenwich, liv. 1697. In that century a single j was used. WILLIAM, 
Watertown 1636, d. 30 Aug. 1658, " aged a. 80 yrs." Perhaps he came 
as early as Nicholas ; and had, in his will of 1655, not nam. any w. but 
refer, to ch. of wh. sev. were brot. by him from Eng. and to His ch. 
were William ; Mary; Eliz. ; John, b. 1624; James, 1627 ; Ann ; and 
Judith. Mary m. Thomas Smith ; Eliz. m. in Eng. a Buttery ; Ann m. 
Thomas Philbrick, but d. bef. her f. wh. in his will names her childr. ;

w. Margaret had Judith, b. 2 Mar. 1653; Eliz. 23 July 1657; and, 
perhaps, others ; left wid. Priscilla, wh. had been wid. of Thomas Akers, 
and s. John. Three of this name had, in 1829, been gr. at Harv. and 
as many at other N. E. coll. 

KNEELAND, JOHN, Boston, one of the found, of the Scots Charit. 
Soc. 1657, by w. Mary had Mary, b. 6 Oct. 1659, d. next yr. ; Hannah,

Presid. of M. M. S. d. 2 Nov. 1788, aged 56. 

KNELL, KNEALE, or KNILL, JOHN, Charlestown, perhaps s. of Nicho 
las, rem. to Boston, had w. Eliz. wh. bee. third w. of Nathaniel Bachiler 
of Hampton, 23 Oct. 1689. Ch. of K. were John, b. 13 May 1679,

the governra. was grant, in 1668, 50 acres, and as much more next yr. ; 
and d. Apr. 1675. His will names only w. and the two s. He seems 
to have been a man of some conseq. has Mr. prefix, and the ment. in 
town rec. of his d. calls him " that aged benefact. of the country." 
PHILIP, Charlestown, perhaps br. of John, by w. Ruth, m. 5 Oct. 1666, 
as wid. Allen, had Ruth, b. 6, bapt. 10 July 1670; Eliz. 15, bapt. 26 
Apr. 1674; and Philip, 4 July 1675, bapt. the same day. His wid.

of 51 or 2 yrs. 18 Feb. 1689, was not pro. bef. 15 Oct. 1699. 

KNIGHT, or KNIGHTS, ALEXANDER ? Ipswich 1635, had kept an inn 
at Chelmsford, Eng. says Vincent in his Hist, of the Pequot war. Per 
haps we may be justif. in think, he came in the Defence, but could not 
obtain license to emb. being a subsidy man ; we kn. at least, that in that

had others of sec. or third w. tho. it seems prob. In the ch. rec. of 
adm. 1667, Abigail K. is call. d. of sis. Stower s, and that may indicate, 
but not exclusive, a maiden ; for " goodman John K." comes in few mos. 
aft.; and on 23 Sept. 1677 is found " Mary K. the w. of our br. John K. 
He m. 19 Dec. 1678, wid. Mary Clements, as fourth w. and she d. 12 


July 1082, and, again, "9 Jan. 1680, Mary K. w. of our br. John K." 
and finally, "9 Mar. 1684, Sarah K. w. of our br. John K. by dism. 
from Boston first ch." as Budington s valua. list, pp. 248, 9 and 50 show. 
So that we might take the last two, or even three to belong to John the 
younger and leave eno. But five ws. this man had. From the will of 
ano. John of Charlestown, no doubt his f. made 14 Feb. 1673, of wh. 
we see not the day of pro. but find the inv. of 1 June 1674, we find no 
other relat. nam. but Eliz. and Abigail, ds. of his s. John, s.-in-law 
Robert Peirce of "Woburn, and the w. his own d. Mary, and makes 
overseer, his friend and br. (but this means only, I judge, the ch. re-

John of C. took, 22 June 1668, Mary Bridge, wh. d. Oct. 1678. In

over by the Dorchester people to strengthen Conant ; perhaps was of 
Duxbury 1638 ; in 1653 giv. evidence a. something that occur, in 1622, 
perhaps only hearsay, he call, his age 66. WILLIAM, Salem, a mason, 
had gr. of Id. 1637, yet seems rather to belong to Lynn, freem. 2 May 
1638, had John, Ann, Francis, Hannah, all by sec. w. Eliz. Jacob, 
Daniel, Eliz. and Mary, and d. 5 Mar. 1656. From Lewis was this 
acco. deriv. by Farmer ; yet there is evid. that he had John and Francis, 
Joanna, and Mary on^ all brot. from Eng. and that the s. both went 
home, and there l^ancis d. without issue ; but John aft. serv. the 
parliam. cause in the civil war, obt. possessn. of est. in Eng. that was 
his f. s m. and d. in that country. His will, of 2 Dec. 1653, provides 
for div. of est. among the ch. of both ws.i ea. nam. and to eldest s. Jacob 
doub. portion. The inv. was ret. when the will was pro. 28 June 1655. 
. WILLIAM, Topsfield, came, perhaps, in 1638, tho. by no means can I

agree with Farmer in mak. him freem. on 2 May of that yr. imply of 
course that he -had come as early as 1637, when the prefix of resp. is 
wanting to this name next yr. ; however it may be that he came not bef. 
1G39, in wh. yr. he had gr. of 200 acres at Ipswich, to the outlying 
farmers of wh. town, in 1641, at the place call. New Meadows, he began 
to preach. This was 8 or 9 yrs. bef. the incorp. by its present name,

tells, so that prob. K. was discourag. at least bef. 1648 we kn. lie went 
home. Mather, putting him into his first classis of min. found no 
Christian name for him, yet as above twenty others of the same list 
show the same deficiency, we may be sure, he did not much inquire. 
Of this name, had, in 1834, eight been gr. at the var. N. E. coll. yet

WILLIAM, Groton, freem. 1670, d. 10 Dec. 1672, in 90th or 91st yr. 
Tradit. more credib. than common makes him bring the William 
and John, perhaps at the same time with William Martin of Reading, 
\vh. in. their mo. yet it does not tell the name of their f. nor whether the 
mo. m. in Eng. to Martin, nor whether the gr.f. had w. on this side of 
the water, nor when or whence he came. Shattuck, 95, borrows the 
tradit. of Butler in Hist, of G. 273, that he emigr. in his old age from 
Redington. But this must be mistake, as there is no such place in Eng. 
Prob. the parish of Ridlington is meant. That is a small parish in the 
hundred of Martinsley, Co. Rutland, 2 and ms. from Uppingham ; or 
more likely the- native seat of the Lakins may have been the smaller

Goodyear, and others, wh. was never heard of. Johnson, in his 
W. W. P. and Winth. II. 266, well relate the matter ; but Mather, 
Magn. I. 25, has prov. the gr. superiority result, from tradit. of a story 
told 50 yrs. aft. to the contempo. narrat. By tak. the " dimensions " of

phena had Mary, Abigail, and Andrew, all bapt. in Aug. 1G46; John, 
30 Jan. 1648 ; and with this s. I pause to expose many errors. To him 
is giv. s. Samuel, b. 1G Mar. 1678 by w. Mehitable Hobart. Sorry am 
I to obs. that in the Geneal. Reg. XIII. 91, the statem. that "John, 
bapt. in Norton, 30 June 1648, m. Mehitable Hobart," labors under 
such incongru. It says that Andrew and Tryphena had seven childr. 
when the names of nine are kn. No s. Samuel had he, no Mehitable 
Hobart can be found for that John to m. and he could not be bapt. at 
Norton that day, for the town was not begun to be sett, till many yrs. aft. 
nor could he be bapt. anywhere else in N. E. on 30 June 1648, wh. was 
not Sunday, but Friday, Beside those four ch. we find Ephraim, bapt.

July 1657 ; and Hannah, 17 Oct. 1658; and he d. 1 May 1675. His

but whether the date of Mary, wh. m. William Orcutt, were earlier or 
later in m. than her sis. Abigail, is uncert. ; and Hannah rn. Thomas

Prob. reg. All the s. and the hs. of the ds. gave, 27 July 1675, to their

LANGFORD, JOHN, Salem, mov. in from ano. town ,but wh. is unkn. tho. 
prepond. of prob. is in favor of Sudbury. He was freem. 1645, yet his 
name is not among ch. memb. in Salem, down to 1650 ; but there he was 
liv. 1689, as, Farmer says, is shown by Revo, in N. E. Justif. 41. 
Mr. Felt assures me, there was a Francis Lingford of Essex Co. in 
1663 ; and possib. he may have been of the same fam. RICHARD, writ.

only Sarah, b. 15 Mar. 1668, wh. m. Nov. 1686, Jonathan May of H. 
WILLIAM, Lynn, freem. 14 Mar. 1639, in 1677 was, I think, of Charles-

Eliz. JOSEPH, Ipswich 1648, may have been s. of Roger. ROGER, 
Ipswich, freem. 4 Mar. 1635. His inv. of 24 Jan. 1672 may seem to 
prove, that he d. that winter. SAMUEL, Northampton, s. of John, m.

20 May 1676 ; and Thomas, again, bapt. 9 Sept. and d. 8 Nov. 1677; 
and d. hims. 10 Dec. foil, of smallpox. Gladly would we receive better 
notes of this very num. fam. If the stocks spring from Edward alone, 
or not, is not kn. to me. At Salem, in 1668, was Mordecai, but unless 
he be the same as Larcom, of him I hear nothing, exc. that he sign, that 
yr. petit, against imposts. 

LARRABEE, BENJAMIN, Falmouth, s. of Isaac, a milit. man, recov.

mouth a.- 1680, being driv. off by the Ind. went to Lynn, says Willis;

Thomas. In Maine the name spread much. WILLIAM, m. at Maiden 
Nov. 1655, Eliz. perhaps d. of George Felt; was freem. 1690. Some 
times this name is pervert, to Leatherby, as very oft. it was sound.

nothing can be kn. 

LATHAM, * GARY, Cambridge, m. Eliz. d. of John Masters, and prob.

New London, where he was of active serv. rep. 1664, and aft. to 70. 
He had there Eliz. wh. m. 25 Jan. 1678, John Leeds; Jane, m. Hugh 
Hubbard; Lydia, m. John Packer; and Hannah, wh. m. prob. John 
Lockwood. lie d. 1685. JOSEPH, New London, s. of the preced. took

New London ten more ch. at his d. in 1706 leav. seven s. one d. 
LEWIS, Newport, of wh. we kn. no more, but that his d. Frances m. 
Jeremiah Clark, and was mo. of Gov. Walter and others ; but it may be 
that he never came to our shores. ROBERT, Cambridge, perhaps br. of 
Gary, liv. two yrs. or more with Rev. Thomas Shepard, rem. to Marsh- 
field, where he was constable 1 643, thence to Plymouth, where he m. 
Susanna, d. of John Winslow, in 1649, and had Mercy, b. 2 June 1650; 
bef. 1667 rem. to Bridgewater, had s. James, Chilton, Joseph, Eliz. 
Hannah, and Sarah. Mitchell thinks him s. of William. Hannah m. 
Joseph Washburn. THOMAS, New London, s. of Gary, m. 15 Oct. 
1673, Rebecca, d. of Hugh Wells, had only ch. Samuel; and his wid. 
m. 24 June 1676, John Packer. Groton side of the harbor of New 
London was the resid. of the fam. still perpet. there. WILLIAM, Ply 
mouth, came in the Mayflower, 1620, serv. to Gov. Carver, only a 
youth, and, in 1627, had sh. in the div. of cattle, being in the lot w r ith 
Gov. Bradford, yet was never nam. as one of the Mayflower s comp. in 
1620 when he was a boy under Carver s charge, and for the div. of 
Ids. in 1624, with ano. serv. of C. may have help. John Howland to 
count four heads. By the discov. of Bradford s Hist, his right to pas 
sage in the first sh. is prov. He was of Duxbury 1637-9, and Marsh- 


field 1643, and 8, and in Bradford we see, that aft. so long resid. here, 
he went home to Eng. thence to the Bahamas, and d. of starvation. Of 
one Latham, in our country, there is idle tradit. that he was brot. up 
with Charles I. but no benefit or evil of the companions!!, is boasted.

the name ; rem. to Fairfield, and thence in few yrs. to L. I. a. Hunting-

against the Duke.

LAURIE, FRANCIS, Salem, of wh. the Hist. Coll. of Essex Inst. II. 
15, gives all that I have learn, that his will of 6 Nov. 1665, pro. June 
foil. ment. s.-in-law John Neal and w. Mary, and Jeremiah, John 
Jonathan, Joseph, and Lydia. But conject. is bold eno. to suggest, that

was on the side of moderat. so far as to disappr. the banishm, of Wheel 
wright. He d. says the rec. 1 Mar. but Frothingham, wh. may have 
reason, says 5 Apr. 1646. A wid. Sarah says the rec. d. 24 Jan. 1661, 
at Maiden, and I find admin. 2 Apr. foil, on est. of wid. Jane (but no 
doubt the same person), of M. yet I am wholly unable to guess wh. 
would have been the h. unless she were a sec. w. of William, or we pre 
sume the rec. of -adm. into the ch. means only to designate her as his w.

is that the German derivat. should be some centuries earlier.

honor, as " c*e of the most ancient, if not the most ancient," that ever

when he, of course, could not be over 43 yrs. old. Even if he puts his 
arr. a dozen yrs. too early, as to me seems prob. he borders on presumpt. 
in clos. with assert. " no monum. inscript. in N. E. but his will date back 
to 1580." Surely one dozen, if not two, of the first score of yrs. comers 
to N. E. includ. Elder Brewster and Gov. Dudley, must have been b. 
as early as this venerab. head of the Lelands. HOPESTILL, Sherborn,

LELLOCK, JOSEPH, Boston, found in the sec. copy of rec. to have, by

almost an impossib. name, occurr. in no other place of county, town, or ch. 
rec. I spent a good time in vain attempt to find it or any such from 
wh. the pervers. might have orig. but on the older copy could not 
discern it, nor do I believe it was ever in the true lost rec. This instance 
justifies my caution to all interest, in similar inquiries, and to courts of 
law, not to accept certif. copies, but to call for orig. rec.

great worth, form, the heart and mind of her admira. eldest ch. the

active in civ. life, as speaker of the Ho. and one of the Judges of the

B. D. was introd. 1692 for the first and last time, in conjunct, with the 
first S. T. D. then bestow, on Increase Mather, the head of the Irist. 
Great was the reput. of the Coll. dur. his presid. care ; but he expend. 
his private fortune for its good ; and from an inadequate salary irregul. 
.paid, left his childr. in poverty. Cotton M. wh. ought to have been

express, gratitude for his attent. to his s. the gr. of 1723 ; but in a letter

drone." For the effect of the preposterous falsehood on the London 
friend of the Coll. see Hollis s note in the invalua. Hist, of the Univ. I. 
343 ; and we kn. that the number of students, was more than double in 
the last seven . or ten yrs. of the rule of Leverett to what the same 
period of Increase Mather exhibits. Allowance should be made, how 
ever, for such failing in Cotton Mather s expression of his pious ma 
lignity, bee. the next Presid. of Harv. aft. I. Mather, and the six yrs. of 
AVil lard s substitu. was this same Leverett, wh. stood two yrs. younger 
in the Coll. Catal. than the ambitious and ambiguous author of the 
Magnalia. Tenderness was shown by Rev. Dr. Colman, the correspond, 
of Hollis, wh. preach, a fun. sermon two days aft. the d. of M. for he 
kind, kept back the knowl. of the posthum. attack on his friend L. 
Indeed the charge was so absurd, and the reputa. of its inventor for 
studied looseness of language, had so long been establish, that Colman 
would, on such an occasion, have been thot. blameworthy for point, out

that there may be no mistake, repeats the names in a few lines. ROB

Apr. 1706. Jedediah, wh. d. at more than 90 yrs. is progenit. of very 
num. public men, as thro. s. Enoch, f. of the disting. Levi, H. C. 1772, 
of Worcester, wh. was f. of Levi, H. C. 1802, Gov. of Mass, and of 
Enoch, Gov. of Maine, as thro. s. William of Solomon, the glad historian 
of his nat. town. STEPHEN, Hingham 1638, came that yr. from Wymond- 
ham^ a town a. 9 ms. from Norwich, bring, mo. w. and s. Stephen, but 
prob. not in the Diligent, that arr. 10 Aug. of that yr. or Cushing, wh.was 
careful to note his fellow-passeng. would have told us so ; had Sarah, b. 
22 Mar. 1642 ; and his w. wh. name is unkn. d. next mo. ; the d. d. 4 
Nov. 1649, and he d. 11 Oct. 1658. His will, made 3 days bef. ment. 
his mo. Joan, Susanna, d. of his br. Thomas, and gives part of his est. 
to mo. but most to only ch. STEPHEN, Hingham, only s. of the preced.

Nov. 1660; Mary, 27 Dec. 1662; Stephen, 9 Nov. 1665; David, 22 
Sept. 1668, bef. ment.; Bethia, 29 Oct. 1670; Abigail, 7 Apr. 1673;

m. 4 Jan. 1693, Ephraim Marsh ; Mary m. 11 Jan. 1688, Enoch Whiton ; 
Bethia m. 16 Apr. 1701, J6hn Lane; and of the other two ds. no rec. 
of m. or d. is found. STEPHEN, Hingham, s. of the preced. never m. 
was ens. town elk. and d. 27 Dec. 1717. THOMAS, Hingham 1636, the 
weaver, elder br. of the first Samuel, was two yrs. or more at Water- 
town and Charlestown, having, says the Cushing MS. come with Nicholas 
Jacob, a relat. in 1633 ; had gr. of Ids. in 1635, and house lot gr. 3 July 
1636, so that he would be judged a first sett, with Hobart, and may have 
been the freem. of Mar. 1638 or of 18 May 1642. His first w. Susanna 
d. Mar. 1641, and he had ano. w. Mary, who, by one report, prob. erron. 
outliv. him, and d. 2 Sept. 1675, leav. no ch. His will is without date, 
but well pro. provides for w. gives small legacy to br. Samuel, larger 
to Samuel, and Daniel, s. of that br. and smaller to ea. of the other liv. 
ch. exc. Rebecca, latest b. wh. may render prob. that it was made bef. 
she was b. THOMAS, Ilingham, the miller, prob. came 1635, certain, had 


house lot 3 July 1636, brot. sev. ch. perhaps two or three, rem. a. 1652 
to Taunton, where he took sec. w. 10 Dec. 1G65, Eliz. Streete, prob. 
wid. of Francis. He, in his will of 28 Aug. 1683, call. hims. "eighty 
yrs. or thereabouts/ pro. 5 Mar. foil, he ment. with these ch. of former 
w. Thomas, John, Samuel, Sarah, Mary, and s.-in-law Joseph Willis, 
perhaps h. of Sarah, and Sarah s s. Thomas. In Geneal. Reg. VI. 188, 
it is print. Linton. THOMAS, Hingham, the cooper, s. of Thomas, in 0. E. 
had gr. in the town 1636, more likely, in my judgment, than either of 
the preced. to have been the freem. of Mar. 1638, had, bef. com. from 
Eng. m. 1630, a d. of Andrew Lane, had two ch. of wh. one d. and the 
other, Sarah, was brot. and d. soon aft. arr. and here had Thomas, bapt. 
6 May 1638 ; Joseph, 22 Nov. 1640, bef. ment. ; Benjamin, 7 May 1643, 
bef. ment.; Deborah, 3 Aug. 1645; and Sarah, 6 Oct. 1650, d. young. 
His w. wh. name is unkn. d. 13 Feb. 1683, and he d. 28 Sept. 1691. 
His will, of 13 July 1688, names the four liv. ch. Deborah m. 13 June 
1 678, as sec. w. Samuel Thaxter. Tradit. brings him from West of 
Eng. where he left br. John. This may seem not improb. if we substi 
tute I-], lor W. Th<- name belong, to Co. Xorf k. or the adj. Co. Lincoln. 
THOMAS, Hingham 1638, the husbandman, br. of the first Stephen, prob. 
younger, had gr. of Id. 1638, came, says the Gushing MS. in 1638 from 
Wymondham, Co. Norf k. with Jeremiah Moore, perhaps is the freem. 
of 18 May 1642, had w. Margaret, d. of Richard Langer, and ch. Caleb, 
bapt, 8 Oct. 1643, d. soon; Joshua and Caleb, tw. 2 Mar. 1645, of wh. 
the latter, I think, liv. not long; Susanna ; Mary, b. 10, bapt. 23 Apr. 
1648; Sarah, 29 Sept. bapt, 6 Oct. 1650; Thomas, 26 Dec. 1652; 
Eliz. and Ruth, b. 19 Nov. 1664. He d. 16 Aug. 1692 ; but his will, of 
24 May 1681, names the w. and eight ch. His d. Susanna m. 16 May 
1666, to Joseph Barstow of Scituate ; Mary m. 5 Jan. 1675, Francis 
Barker of Duxbury ; Sarah m. 6 May 1675, Thomas Marsh ; Eliz. m. 23 
Jan. 1678, Daniel Lincoln, bef. ment.; and Ruth, m. Jan. 1685, Samuel 
Gill. It seems very curious, that at our Hingham, within the first three 
yrs. of its sett, should be found four heads of fams. nam. Thomas Lincoln, 
and yet at Hingham in O. E. where this fam. name was quite freq. not 
one Thomas occurs in the rec. from 1600 to 1663 incl. neither as f. nor 
s. among ms. 15 in number, of wh. 8 were of males, nor among 28 bur. 
nor among 62 bapt. Clearly the other parishes of Co. Norf k. had the 
name of bapt. in greater abund. for males of this surname. THOMAS, 
Taunton, s. of Thomas, the miller, of Hingham, b. in Eng. had Mary, b. 
12 May 1652; Sarah, 25 Sept. 1654; Thomas, 21 Apr. 1656; Samuel, 
16 Mar. 1658 ; Jonah, 7 July 1660; Hannah, 15 Mar. 1663 ; d. Con 
stant, 16 May 1665; Eliz. 24 Apr. 1669; and Mercy, 3 Apr. 1670.

young; and Josiah, 10 Apr. 1699, wh, was a deac. and liv. to 23 Jan. 
1774. He was freem. prob. 1672, a lieut. and capt. d. 28 Nov. 1708; 
and in his will of 18 Dec. 1700, names only w. Lydia and her two s.

1685, Sarah, d. of James Lewis of Barnstable, had Sarah, b. 21 Oct. 
1685; Susanna, 19 Sept. 1688; Thomas, 30 Aug. 1692, d. at 3 mos. ;

wid. m. 20 Feb. foil. Robert Waterman. THOMAS, Taunton, eldest s. 
of Thomas of the same, m. 14 Nov. 1689, Susanna Smith; but my 
kn. ends here. WILLIAM, Roxbury, a soldier in the comp. of his towns 
man, the brave capt. Johnson, was wound. 19 Dec. 1675, in the gr. 
Narraganset battle, and d. soon aft. Twenty of this name had, in 1834, 
been gr. at Harv. two at Yale, and four at other coll. of N. E. 

LINDALL, LYNDALL, or LINDALE, HENRY, New Haven 1646, some

(commit, by the Ct. to care of Constant Southworth) Abigail, arid Timothy, 
wh. was b. 3 May 1642, says the fam. bible tradit. wh. carries other less 
definite matters, as that he was from the North of Eng. and had James, 
Caleb, and Joshua, wh. d. of the plague bef. he came over. JAMES, 
Boston, was a soldier in Oliver s comp. and wound, in the terrib. day of 
Narraganset, tho. hav. been press, in the first of the mo. he had hir. a

might easi. arise by reading c as t, wh. in the old engross, hand it so 
much resembles as to have a thousand times been so tak. Possib. the 
modern fam. of Luscome at Salem may thus be derived. See Lyscom.

249) but 27 Aug. 1643. That he had other ch. of wh. one or two must 
have been b. in Eng. is plain eno. from his will of 23 Mar. 1663, in wh. 
while he names these, he ment. that he formerly gave prop, to s. Bar

Sarah, b. Dec. 1GGG; Thomas; Eliz.; Mary; Hannah; Jabez ; Re 
becca ; Bethia ; Bathshua ; and Patience, given by Mr. Hamblen from 
the rec. Geneal. Keg. XII. 249, with so many inconsist. dates that we 
kn. not wh. may be correct. In Col. Rec. we read, " Joseph, Benjamin,

army without license in Jan. 167G, calumn. the officers, and report, many 
notorious lies), sent him to prison, but he was soon releas. on acknowledg. 
of his offence, and promise to do good service. He was engag. in the 
work of befooling Sir Edmund Andros in 1G80 about the regicide Goffe, 
and swore, in N. Y. 20 Apr. 1680, where A. was then Gov. that G. 
was, in Apr. 1678, liv. at Hartford, and that James Richards, W!K was 
the oldest mem. of the Counc. and the richest man in the Col. was agt.

and much other preposterous stuff he testif. All wh. trifling was, with 
the letter of .Andros to Conn. Gov. and their reply, print, in 1855. 
See the curious matter in Conn. Hist. Coll. III. 284, et seq. showing 
how the letter of Gov. Andros from New York, of 18 May, was receiv. 
on 10 June, twenty-three days from date, and travel, almost six miles a 
day. Perhaps Gov. Leete was innocent of the deception, but he must 
have been blind, or deaf, or both, not to have suspect, the contrivance, 
and distrust, the agent.

that four have, at diff. times, been of the corpo. of the Univ. 

JLp.WGiE, or LOUGEE, John, came at the age of 16, in the Confidence 
of London, from Southampton 1638, with Grace, perhaps his sis. as 
serv. of John Stephens of Caversham, Oxfordsh. This name is preserv. 
in N. H. but the tradit. of the fam. derives it from a John, wh. came 
from the Isle of Jersey, seventy yrs. later. 

LUCAII, MARK, Newport, among freem. 1655. 

LUCAS, THOMAS, Plymouth, had John, b. 15 July 165G; Mary, 15

New Haven 1643, with fam. of six, of wh. no more is heard. He prob. 
was one of the London associates who soon went home. A Lucas fam. 
of good est. in N. E. is of French descent, but came not early across 
the ocean, the first emigr. Augustus writ, of hims. "I m. 6 Jan. 1696, at 
St. Malo, in Bretagne." 

LUCE, or LUCY, HENRY, Rehoboth 1668. THOMAS, Charlestown, had 
Samuel, b. 1644, says Farmer, to wh. I can add nothing, but that he prob. 
rem. soon. The name abounds at the Vineyard. One LUCY, at Ports 
mouth, m. Mary, d. of William Brooking, and had Benjamin. 

LUCKIS, or LUCKIN, WILLIAM, Marblehead 1648. Dana, Hist. Disc. 7. 

LUDDEX, BENJAMIN, Weymouth, perhaps s. of James, by w. Eunice, 
d. I think, of John Holbrook, had d. Abia, b. 22 Dec. 1679; a s. whose 
name is not kn. 13 Mar. 1681 ; and James, 9 Nov. 1689. JAMES, 
Weymouth, had Mary, b. 17 Dec. 1636; Sarah, 15 Nov. 1639, d. soon; 
Sarah, again, 5 June 1642 ; and John, so late as 13 Jan. 1657, by w. 
Alice, wh. may have been mo. of the others. Perhaps this man was 
the guide, in Oct. 1632, in honor of wh. Gov. Winth. then travelling on 
foot from Plymouth to W. named a fording place in the North river. 
But the rec. in Geneal. Reg. IX. 171, calls him Laddon. In the note 
on p. 146 of the Hist, of Boston, attention is drawn to this name. 
Diligent as the writer is, his meaning may be misunderstood, when, aft. 
printing the name Ludham, at the foot, tho. in the text above, and in his 

123 LUD 

Index, with me he adopts Luddam, yet, for change of sec. d to h he 
says, " I follow Prince, wh. follow, or used Winth. in the original" As 
the last three words are print, in Italics it might seem, that an insinua 
tion was intend, that I had not used or follow, the orig. A candid 
reader need not be distressed with such a suspicion, or presume that Mr. 
Drake believ. such a thing ; for the venerable MS. in its original ink is 
accessib. and here more plain than often it appears. Winth. wrote the 
name twice in the same short sentence, the first time, as it was print, by 
me, and the sec. as giv. in Webster s Ed. of 1790, with h aft. double dd. 
I was content with one form. Prince struck a mid. course, and the his 
torian of Boston might learn from inspection, that the petty deviation 
from the orig. is seen in the scrupulous annalist, Hale s Ed. 407, and 
not in the annotator of Winth. Nobody would blame Winth. for spell 
ing the name two ways in one sentence, nor Prince for so slight vari 
ance from both ; nor quarrel with Seer. Porter in transcrib. the copy 
that Webster print, for obeying the latter form of Winthrop s writing of 
the name with an h, nor with me for accepting the earlier form, without 
that letter. After inspection of the ancient. MS. Mr. Drake would 
observe that his criticism was more than unnecessary ; and his readers 
may excuse the error by inferring that instead of the open, bold Roman 
types, the natural overflow of his benignant impulses sought the more 
modest Italic character of censure. JOHN, Weymouth, wh. may have 
been s. of the preced. was a soldier on Conn. riv. under capt. Turner, in 
Mar. 167G. This name is not rare in the W. part of Mass.

Huntingdon, L. I. adm. freem. of Conn. 1664; may have been s. of

long aft. refut. by find, the vol. in town. He had a ch. b. at W. but the 
rec. does not tell the name ; and his d. Sarah m. Rev. Nathaniel Brew- 
ster of Brookhaven. That the habit, heedlessness of Mather, II. 33, 
made his name William, is less matter of surprise than that Farmer was 
blinded by the blunder. Its origin was prob. reading Mr. as abbrev. for 

130 LUD LUN 

LUDWELL, JOHN, a passeng. aged 50, in the Confidence from South 
ampton 1638, but no more is kn. of him. 

LUFKIN, HUGH, Salem 1654, says Farmer, and I can add nothing. 
^THOMAS, Gloucester, perhaps s. of Hugh, by w. Mary had Joseph, b. 16 
Nov. 1674; Ebenezer, 18 May 1676; Abraham and Isaac, tvv. 14 and 
16 Feb. says the rec. without ment. of the yr. but it adds (as we might 
expect), d. same mo.; and Thomas, 9 Apr. 1682. The name is spell. 
Lovekin or Loufken. Luf kin is a name at Dedham, in Old Eng. 

LUGG, or LUGGE, JOHN, Boston 1637, by w. Jane had Eliz. b. 7 
Mar. 1638, bapt. 24 Mar. 1639, the mo. aft. his w. join, to the ch. ; 
Mary, b. Aug. 1642, but the rec. of her bapt. 25 Sept. adds, "a. 4 days 
old ; " and John, 4 Aug. 1644, a. 2 days old ; and he d. 1647. He is, 
I presume, the man wh. Felt enumer. among Salem people, as John 
Luff, hav. gr. of Id. 1637, because that name never occurs elsewhere 
except in the list of passeng. to pass for N. E. in the Mary and John, 
who took the o. of supremacy and alleg. 24 Mar. 1634. Final letters 
are easily mistaken; and very many of such grants were ineffect. 
In the will of Samuel Hagborne of Roxbury, 24 July 1643, are giv. 
" unto my br. Lugg four bushels of corn, and my suit of apparel." 
His d. Mary m. 11 Feb. 1659, Nathaniel Barnard. Possib. there 
were both Luff and Lugg with common name of John, but it appears 
very unlikely. 

LUIN, HENRY, Boston, by w. Sarah had Sarah, b. 20 Aug. 1636;

appears, that he was to determine when an offender should be whipp.

on the side of mercy, for the poor Scotch prisoner, a waif from the civil

NATHANIEL, Boston 1670, perhaps br. of Josiah, by w. Deborah had 
William, b. 19 Feb. 1672. RICHARD, Scituate 1646, by Deane, 309, 
was reckon, a youth in Elder Brewster s fam. who could claim to have 
come in the Mayflower, 1620; but I reject that supposition, for the per 
son who had share with Brewster s lot in the div. of cattle, 1627, was 
not Mann, but More. See Davis s Morton, 382 ; and Bradford gives the 
Mayflower Richard More to be count, with the other heads, to Brewster, 
six in number, at the div. of Ids. He had Nathaniel, b. 1646, and d. a. 
1656 ; Thomas, 15 Aug. 1650 ; Richard, 1652 ; and Josiah, 1654. The 
last was prob. that soldier of wh. no more is kn. Of Nathaniel, Deane 
says he liv. in S. left no fam. gave est. 1680, to his brs. Thomas and 
Richard, yet refers to his Appx. II. in wh. no more is found. But he 
may have been short time of Boston. Thomas saw hard fighting and 
was badly wound, in the Rehoboth day, when Pierce was ambushed ; 
but liv. to have four s. and three ds. of wh. descend, are yet seen. 
Richard had three s. and four ds. I can feel no doubt, that this Mann 
should be More, or Moore. See that name. SAMUEL, Dedham 1642.

Dedham one yr. for 20. " to be pd. in corn at the current price," and

wh. kn. that vacancy did not occur by d. of Chauncy until 1672. The

Sarah, again, 29 Jan. 1711 ; Mary, 14 Mar. 1715; and Eliakim, 15 
July 1720, d. in few days. FRANCIS, Boston, master mariner, came- in 
the Christian from London, 1635, aged 30, was liv. in 1659. JAMES, 
.Windsqr 1640, was from Exeter, in Devon, did not long cont. and, per 
haps, was the man, expect, in vain, to sett, at New Haven 1643, where 
his est. was val. at 1,000, his fam. of five heads, and his lot, transf. to 
Richard Mansfield. He sold his W. est. and may be that " rich merch." 
referred to in Winth. I. 150. JOEL, Hartford 1682, perhaps s. of 
Thomas of the same. JOHN, Duxbury, had been of Leahorn, in Co. 
Kent, s. and heir of Sybil Marshall, by wh. descript. in Nov. 1631, he 
enters into contr. of m. with Mary, eldest d. of Rev. Ralph Partridge of 
Sutton, near Dover, to wh. and his br. Jervase P. citizen and cord- 
wainer of Lond. as trust, he made convey, of est. in Co. Kent, as 
jointure of his w. if she outliv. him. This instr. with a bond in the 
penal sum of 200 to secure, &c. are rec. in Vol. III. of our Suff k. 
Reg. of Deeds ; but it is curious, that these docum. were not rec. here 
bef. Jan. 1661, some yrs. aft. d. of the Rev. Ralph, wh. in his will 
notices Robert and John, s. of his d. Mary M. JOHN, Providence 
1639. JOHN, Boston, came, perhaps, in the Hopewell, capt. Babb, from

as, 11 May 1656; Benjamin, 15 Feb. 1661; and Christopher, 18 Aug.

166G; Samuel, 14 July 1669; and Joseph, 14 Apr. 1G72; was prob.

sub. 25 Dec. 1700, John writes "br. Thomas came to Boston to visit, 
aft. being abs. 17 yrs. and ^, tarried three wks. and ret." Whence he 
came for this visit to his nat. town, must be inq. but can hard, be answ. 
JOHN, Greenwich 1672. JOHN, Boston 1681-4, had an office under 
the Col. governm. with salary of 13. a yr. may have been freem. 1690,

made to own lot a dozen yrs. too early, and rep. in 1637, magistr. in 
1638, when he never gain, either of those honors. Thomas was mistak. 
for this Samuel, wh. m. 6 May 1652, Mary, only ch. of David Wilton,

1667, d. at nine yrs.; Eliakim, 10 July 1669; John, 10 Apr. 1672; 
and Eliz. 27 Sept. 1674. He was freem. 1654, and in the war against 
Philip had short but most honor, serv. On 30 Nov. he was made a 
capt. in place of Benjamin Newbury, who was disabled, for the project, 
winter campaign, and on 19 Dec. 1675, in the great swamp fight, the 
hardest ever kn. in N. E. he was k. with many of the men under him.

Lydia; and Mercy; was freem. 1G90. SAMUEL, Boston 1681, had w. 
Ruth, freem. 1691. * THOMAS, Dorchester 1634, freem. 6 May 1635, 
rem. it is thot. to Windsor; was rep. in Mar. and Apr. 1638 ; but no 
more is kn. with certainty. In Stiles, Hist. 698, he is said to m. 2 Mar. 
1637, Mary Drake, wh. may have been d. of the first John; and we 
might suppose, from the same line, the same man m. 10 May 1660, 
Bethia Parsons, but the darkness is palpable, upon the same page, where 
he teach, that Thomas Maskell m. that day that same woman ; and 
great distrust springs up, when we see him, p. 735, give the same woman, 
the same day, to Thomas Haskell. * THOMAS, Boston, shoemaker, or 
ferryman, or both, call, widower on adm. to the ch. 31 Aug. 1634; 
freem. 4 Mar. 1635, had brot. from Eng. prob. s. Thomas and Samuel, 
ds. Sarah and Frances ; and here by sec. w. Alice had Eliakim, b. 1 
Mar. 1637, yet not bapt. until 15 Apr. 1638, no doubt on acco. of the 
antinora. quarrel in the ch. for acting with the major part of wh. in 
support of Wheelwright, he was rec[uir. in Nov. 1637 to surrender his 
arms ; but like most of the rest, thus abused, regain, high esteem, was 
selectman 1647-58, deac. and rep. 1650, and d. perhaps 1665. Frances 
m. 16 July 1652, Joseph Howe; and Sarah m. James Penniman. 
Great indulgence must be granted to investigat. a. this name, for ano. 
THOMAS, Boston 1643, a tailor, adm. of the ch. 17 Feb. 1644, had 
Thomas, bapt. 7 Jan. 1644, 5 days old; freem. in May of same yr. 
prob. and in June foil, was excom. I think he went to New Haven, aft. 
recov. in 1646, the favor of his former fellow-worshippers. * || THOMAS, 
Reading, came, prob. in- the James from London 1635, aged 22, had 
Hannah, b. 7 June 1640; Samuel, 1 Sept: 1643, d. in one wk. ; Abigail; 
Sarah, d. young; Thomas arid Rebecca, tw. 20 Feb. 1648; Eliz. ; 
Sarah, again, 14 Feb. 1655; was freem. 1653, a lieut. and aft. very 
long deliberat. by me, is thot. to be that man of Lynn, always call. capt. 
who there had Joanna, 14 Sept. 1657 ; John, 14 Feb. 1660; Ruth, 14 
Aug. 1662; and Mary, 25 May 1665; was of ar. co. 1640, and, per 
haps, freem. 4 June 1641 ; certain, rep. 1659, 60, 3, 4, 7, and 8; d. 23 
Dec. 1689; and his wid. Rebecca d. Aug. 1693. Hannah m. at Lynn, 
17 June 1659, John Lewis; Sarah m. 15 July 1674, Ebenezer Stocker; 
and Mary m. 7 Apr. 1685, Edward Baker. Lewis seems to me, to 
have confus. f. and s. and to have misled Farmer. See p. 92 of Lewis, 
Ed. 2d. But for what John Dunton, in Life and Errors, says of this 
capt. hav. been one of Cromwell s soldiers, I am compell. to suspect, that 
the author mistook his jolly host, or that the veteran designedly impos. 
on him. THOMAS, Salem 1657. THOMAS, Middletown 1669, then 
offered as freem. may have had Thomas, Joel, and Mary, wh. m. 27 July 
1665, John Catlin, but it is not certain. THOMAS, d. at Northampton, 

MAR 159 

3 June 1663, but we are sure he was only a casual visitor. THOMAS, 
Andover, ought to have more told of him than is found in Farmer, that 
he d. Jan. 1708, almost 100 yrs. old, and that Joanna d. there in May 
foil, aged a. 100. Perhaps it was his d. Mary wh. m. 6 July 1659, 
Robert Russell. THOMAS, Charlestown 1684, who gains this place, as 
does he of Salem 1657, on authority of Barry. THOMAS, Hartford, had 
sis. Mary, wh. m. John Catlin, but who was their f. is not ascert. He 
had Mary, b. 10 May 1670; John, 24 Feb. 1672 ; William, 21 Apr. 
1674; Thomas, 3 Oct. 1676; Eliz. 23 Oct. 1678; Sarah, 27 Mar. 
1681 ; and Benjamin, 22 Feb. 1684; and d. 1692. His s. Thomas, a 
mariner, m. aft. the date of his will, 15 Feb. 1697, Mary Chantrel of 
Boston, spinster, and she had it pro. 19 Sept. 1700, as his wid. in wh. 
he gave memo, to his sis. Eliz. spinster, and bro. Benjamin, and uncle 
John Catlin, all of Hartford, as he also styles hims. but all resid. to his 
beloved fr. M. C. THOMAS, Windsor, s. of capt. Samuel, m. 3 Mai*.

1709. WILLIAM, Salem 1638, had then, says Felt, gr. of Id. He prob. 
came in the Abigail, 1 635, from London, aged 40. WILLIAM, Charles- 
town, m. 8 Apr. 1666, Mary. d. of William Hilton, wh. d. 15 July 1678, 
aged a. 33, had William, and Mary, bapt. 4 Feb. 1672, she hav. join,

and by sec. w. Lydia had Samuel, bapt. 31 Aug. 1684; Hannah, 25 
Sept. 1687. Twelve of this name had, in 1834, been gr. at N. E. coll. 
half of them at Harv. three at*Yale, and two at Dart. 

May 1665, Mary, d. of John Gorton, prob. liv. in some other place, 
there had Eliz. until d. of the f. of his w. aft. wh. I find in the rec. of 
R. Hannah, b. 6 May 1677 ; but perhaps he rem. again to some neighb. 
town, and had Samuel, brot. to bapt. with Mehitable, 3 Feb. 1684, when 
we see in rec. of b. only that of the d. 28 Feb. bef. He had also Mary, 
whose b. is not kn. but she d. 8 June 1688 ; and he d. perhaps bef. 
mid. age, and his wid. d. 30 June 1703. Eliz. m. at R. 18 Mar. 1700, 
Samuel Spencer ; and Hannah m. 15 July 1701, Samuel Frost. But 
both the hs. were, I suppose, of ano. town. 

MARSHFIELD, JOSIAH, Springfield, s. of Samuel, m. 22 Sept. 1686,

Holton, jr. ; Hannah m. Joseph Bedurtha; Abilene .m. Thomas -Gil

THOMAS, Windsor, may be thot. to have rem. with Warham, from Dor 
chester, but no certainty is reach, by inquir. unless the conject. be adopt, 
that he and first Thomas Marshall were the same person. The first that 
can positive, be learn, is by a letter from him, as Marshfield, to Samuel 
Wakeman, 6 May 1641, on p. 12 of our Vol. I. of Reg. of Deeds, 
strange as the place is, where an extr. is insert, by Gov. Winth. and 
next yr. he withdrew from the country, as by Conn. Rec. 14 Oct. 1642, 
when the Court appoint, trustees to manage his est. for use of the 
creditors. Perhaps he was lost at sea, but at least no more was ever 
heard of him. His wid. and fam. rem. to Springfield, the ch. being

perhaps was f. of Jacob, and Mary, Hannah, and Sarah, above ment.

aged G2, and his wid. Eliz. d. 7 Jan. 1726, aged 84, say the gr.stones ; 
but he had prob. not liv. there most of his days, for .the list of house 
holders in 1678, Frothingham, 183, tho. it gives the prefix of respect, 
tells not the bapt. name, but indicates barely Mr. Martin s, and there is 
reason to think it did not mean either John s or Thomas s, and Coffin 
authorizes the conject. that he was of Newbury, had Richard, b. 8 Jan. 
1674. A former w. Eliz. d. 6 Oct. 1689 ; and the sec. m. 28 Nov. foil,

July 1640; and Abigail, perhaps eldest of all ; was a milit. officer aft. 
the relig. heats were assuaged; d. aft. 1G66. THOMAS, Boston, s. of the

was freem. 1666, then titled jun. prison-keep. 1674, for sev. yrs. ; d.

1675, Thomas jr. John, Joshua, and Abigail, ch. of his w. s sis. and 
Thomas and Hannah, ch. of that Thomas jr. and Ann, John, and Mary,

b. 25 July 1641, perhaps bapt. but the rec. of ch. prior to Dec. is lost; 
and Eliz. 14, bapt. 22 Oct. 1643. Ellis, in his Hist. 123, follow, the 
erron. suppos. of Farmer, a. his rem. to Springfield, and adds that he 
was excomm. for drunken. Now that censure was on 1 May 1659, 
many yrs. later than his namesake was at S. but then he ought to have 
turned over the ch. vol. very little, and seen that he was restor. to his 
honora. relation 29 Dec. 1660. He was freem. 18 May 1642, when 
the Col. rec. spells it Mathis. JOHN, Rehoboth, perhaps rem. to Spring 
field, m. 1644, Pentecost Bond, had two ch. wh. d. one Sarah, bur. 7 
Jan. 1650, and the w. was k. by the Ind. 5 Oct. 1675. He was fined 
two or three times for drunken, but that frailty would not fully prove

Manasseh, bapt. 24 Jan. 1641, by Lothrop, at Barnstable, but came to 
Hull a. 1644; some yrs. later taught at Maiden, where his troubles are 
copious, detail, by Frothingham, in Hist, of Charlestown ; he had there 
been ord. but, against the good will of the hearers, he was forced to de 
part, was then employ, at Lynn and other places, finally went home, and 
Calamy says he d. at his nat. place, a. 1683. MORDECAI, H. C. 1655,

he went to Eng. ROGER, Dorchester, had gr. of Id. Feb. 1635, but

MATTHEWSON, JAMES, is by Farmer, put into the list of earliest sett,

he had gr. of a houselot 1637. JOHN, Dorchester, freem. 14 Mar. 
1639, by w. Eliz. had Joseph, b. 1638, as print, in Geneal. Reg. V. 244,

visit. Jamaica and other parts of the W. I. where the adventurous spirit 
was excited and schooled, perhaps by Sir Henry Morgan and associate 
buccaneers, the result of wh. was, his bring, home to Boston two prizes 
from some unment. enemy. An explanat. of this may be, that the 
prizes (wh. were command, by Dutchmen) had been engag. in irreg. or 
piratical business. He m. Ann, eldest d. of the first Isaac Addington, 
and sis. of the Hon. Isaac, had Samuel, b. 18 Apr. 1671; Rebecca,

s. Increase. The wid. d. Apr. 1723. The name was spell, with many

MAULE, or MAULD, THOMAS, Salem 1669, a shopkeep. from Eng.

w. had Mary, d. of George Keyser of the same, and in 1695 punish, 
again, for " Truth held forth, &c." Still, he show, great fondness for 
Salem, and- in his will, a. 1723, left a bequest to its use, of wh. part was 
to be applied to support the writing-school. He had s. John, and third

first on the list of those wh. took the o. 18 May 1631, d. 3 Feb. 1636, 
while prepar. to accomp. his friends, wh. rem. to Windsor, perhaps, tho. 
Blake s Ann. say he would have contin. with Mather. He was in 
60th yr. and much do I regret the ill success of inq. for his place of 
educ. or any acco. of his early days. All that we get from the veracious 
annals of Clap, wh. was by his f. commit, to the care of M. when the 
youth had leave to come to N. E. is, that he liv. 40 miles off. On what 
author, he is said to have d. at Boston, I kn. not. JOHN, Boston, possib. 
s. of the preced. as Farmer thot. but to me it seems very improb. by w. 
Jane had John, b. 18, bapt. with his sis. Jane or his mo. 30 Apr. 1653; 
and Dorothy, 23, bapt. 28 Jan. 1655. Perhaps his w. d. soon aft. as

Jemima, d. of lieut, John Smith, had Moses, b. 8 Feb. bapt. at Charles- 
town, 11 Sept. 1681 ; Jotham, 28 Oct. 1683 ; John, 14 Aug. 1687, one 
yr. old. PETER, Boston, elder br. of the preced. m. Martha, d. of Rob 
ert Bradford, had Martha, b. 8 Feb. 1671 ; and James. SAMUEL, Bos 
ton, found here on Noddle s isl. by the Mass. comp. in 1630, hav. -built a 
little fort with four small pieces of artil. so that we may be sure he was 
here in 1629, perhaps came in 1628, too late for liability to expense 
of the expedit. of Endicott against Morton. He desir. adm. 19 Oct. 
1630, into the comp. but did not take the freeman s o. until 2 Oct. 1632. 
Against all probabil. he is call. s. of Rev. John by a writer of more 
animation than exactness, in Hist, of E. Boston ; and even the careful 
Hist, of Dorchester, 404, confident, says the same. For his habit of 
hospitality, he was requir. in the spring of 1635, to change his resid. and 
move to the peninsula, but that tyranny was -not enforced, and in the 
autumn of the same yr. he went to Virg. to buy corn, was absent almost 
a yr. He was one of the king s Commissrs. 1665, and in a depon. 9 
Dec. 1665, sw. he was 63 yrs. old. Of his fam. only w. Amias, d. Mary, 
and s. Nathaniel, and Samuel are kn. Nathaniel, wh. was a merch. in 
a conveyance by his f. and mo. 1650, of the isl. to some creditors, is 
styled heir of Noddle s isl. and he join, in the security. But we never 
hear more of him. Mary m. 8 Feb. 1656, John Palsgrave, and next, 
20 Sept. 1660, Francis Hooke. She, in a petitn. to Andros, a few wks. 
bef. his overthrow, tells a strange story a. her elder br. defraud, his f. of 
the title to Noddle s isl. wh. had above seventeen yrs. been own. by Col. 
Samuel Shrimpton, under sale from Sir Thomas Temple. It may be, 
that, as Shrimpton was oppos. to Sir Edmund A. tho. one of his council, 
that this was a contrivance to get rid of him. See Geneal. Reg. VIII. 
334. SAMUEL, Boston, s. of the preced. m. 4 Dec. 1660, Rebecca, d. of

in few days by creditors that the " est. be not conceal, or convey, away " 
may be seen in Col. Rec. IV. part II. 145, and Geneal. Reg. XII. 155. 
His br.-in-law Francis Hooke was appoint, adraor. 1666, in Maine. So 
that Eliot, in Biog. Diet, mistook, saying he was the last nam. of four 
Royal Commissnrs. in the Warrant of 25 Apr. 1664 to hear all com 
plaints and settle every thing in the Col. of N. E. respective of the 
doings under wh. most copious details are in Hutch. I. 229-57. Strange, 
is he miscall, s. of the Rev. John in Josselyn, 252. His wid. m. 12 
Mar. 1672, William Bradbury. But ano. SAMUEL of Boston, wh. by w. 
Martha had Samuel, b. 16 Mar. 1671, may have been s. of John, tho. it 
is very improb. as the Dorchester min. is never report, to have had any 
s. and he, I infer from both Moses and Samuel sign. 1668 the petitn. 
from Marblehead against imposts, was, perhaps, s. of Moses, and of a 
differ, tribe from the royal commissnr.

from the will of their gr.f. without any indicat. of order, Sarah, Amey, 
Lydia, Mary, John, b. Aug. 1718, and Peter. By a sec. w. whose 
name Potter has not giv. he says there were three, perhaps nam. Eliz. 
Mercy, and Pardon, but the want of precision is unavoid. The name is 
one of the perversions that the Huguenots suffer, in change of their 
alleg. since in France it was spell. Le Moine.

* THOMAS, Watertown, b. early in 1591, came in the Griffin, 1633, if 
we might so infer from the fact of his tak. his o. as freem. 14 May 1G34, 
when Gov. Haynes and Gov. Brenton, besides Cotton, Hooker, and 
Stone, passeng. in that ship were adm. But that infer, would be wrong, 
for in Col. Rec. I. 95, is a report sign, by him and two other gent, for 
sett, out the bounds betw. "Watertown and the new town, 6 Mar. 1G32, 
and in July 1633, he was appoint, admor. of Ralph Glover, while 
Cotton and fellow-passeng. did not arr. bef. Sept. next, so that he must 
have been here in 1631, and he serv. as a merch. at Southampton, Eng. 
as Bond relates, and here as rep. 1636-44 exc. 42, was active in trade, 
first at Medford, aft. at W. but was induced to rem. to the Vineyard a. 
1647, where he was propr. s Gov. and preacher to the Ind. above 33 yrs. d. 
1681, six days only bef. being 90 yrs. old. It is indistinct, pronounc. by 
tradit. that first w. wh. d. in Eng. had been Martha Parkhurst, and sec. 
was prob. brot. with him, Grace, wid. of Thomas Paine of London, and 
by her he had Hannah, b. 15 June 1635; Bethia, 6 Dec. 1636; and 
Mary, 14 Jan. 1640. It is not kn. that he had any s. but Thomas wh. 
he, as b. of the former w. brot. from Eng. but some uncert. is felt as to 
the relat. of f. and I do not concur with Bond, 857, in mak. Jane the 
last w. of Thomas the elder, but think her wid. of the s. nor do I believe 
that it was the s. wh. was, in 1647, chos. by Thomas Paine, then 15 yrs. 
old, as, with his w. Grace, guardians for him. THOMAS, Nantucket, s. 
of the preced. b. in Eng. serv. with his f. at the Vineyard, being the 
first min. bef. rem. to N. m. Jane Paine, perhaps d. of Grace, w. of his 
f. had Matthew, a teacher of much celebr. in the Ind. cause, wh. d. 1710 ; 
Thomas, wh. was a judge ; and John, bef. ment. He was on board of 
that ship of wh. Garrett was master, from Boston to London in Nov. 
1657, with Davis, Ince, and Pelham, young scholars, the hope of the 
country, fellow-passeng. never heard of, so proper, lament, by Gookin, 
as in his Hist. Coll. may be read. He sail, from B. the same day in

The two youngest s. were m. ROBERT, Stratford 1686, a Scotchman, 
came in the Henry and Francis, a sh. of 350 tons, charter, by the laird 
of Pitlochie, as Whitehead, in Hist, of Perth Amboy tells, or in the 
Caledonia (by ano. rep.) a man of war of 50 guns, to transport cove 
nanters releas. from the tolbooths of Edinburgh, Glasgow, and Ster 
ling, on condition of transporta. to the colonies. No little of historic 
interest attaches to this colony that land, their precious freight at Perth 
Amboy. McEwen hims. wh. by tradit. is deriv. from Dumfries, ex 
plains: "In June 18, 1679, I was in an engagem. in Scotland, at Both- 
well brigg, then of the age of 18 yrs. The 5th of Sept. 1685 we set 
sail to come to America, and land, at Amboy 18 Dec. and 18 Feb. foil. 
I came to Stratford." Here he was a tailor, made leather breeches for 
men, stays and mantys for women; and he says he m. 20 June 1695, 
Sarah Wilcockson, d. of Timothy, as the rec. says, noting the m. of 2 
June, and of b. of two first ch. his own writ, agrees very near, with rec.

Feb. 1740. Of fellow-passeng. I presume very few (I hear with 
certain, of only one), came to N. E. and concur, reports say more than 
one third d. on the voyage to N. J. Not a few, Whitehead says, went

being ninth in the mod. catal. but in the old catal. of the Magnalia, the 
class contain, but eight. I found at the State House a letter from 
Samuel (teach, the gram. sch. 1700 at Hadley) to Cotton Mather, beg. 
his aid in restoring him to a higher rank ; but the consequence was, that 
Mather had his cous. Roland Cotton insert, in the catal. as second next 
aft. Gov. Vaughan, and poor Melyen took nothing but one peg lower by 
his motion. So that he had shown greater discret. in keep, quiet, than 
in ask. the patronage of his Boston friend. His wid. d. Nov. 1717.

a dornock weaver at Norwich, and free of the city, where all his ch. 
were b. m. 13 Oct. 1616, Sarah, had Michael, b. 13 Nov. 1617, d. soon; 
Mary, 14 Oct. 1618, but the geneal. of the fam. in Reg. VI. 173, 
says 14 Feb. 1619 ; Michael, again, 29 Aug. 1620 ; John, 5 or 15 Sept.

was b. at a village near Norwich, he says, 17 June 1593, but possib. the 
figures have been mistaken, as in the examin. one week bef. the sail, of 
the ship, call. I think, the Rose, of Yarmouth, from Yarmouth, Apr. 
1637, he calls hims. 45 yrs. of age, and w. 39. "From the relig. 
tyranny " exercised by Wren, then Bp. of Norwich, he felt forced to 
esc. even at the expense of separ. from his fam. for a time, and emb. at 
London, 17 Sept. 1636, for N. E. but was sadly tormented by equal 
tempests on the water, and the ship at Christmas put back to Plymouth ; 
and so far was this a happiness that in Apr. foil, he had license for the 
whole fam. to come ; only 8 ch. are ment. in the custom-ho. docum. but 
I can hardly doubt that the name of John was casually overlook. At 
Boston he arr. " three days bef. mid. sum. with w. nine ch. and a serv." 
wh. was Thomas Comberbach, aged 16, I presume in one of the three 
ships ment. by Winth. as coming in, from Ipswich, 20 June. He may 
have been br. of Joseph ; was freem. 13 May 1640, or 18 May 1642, and, 
perhaps, swore on both days, tho. more prob. it is a fault of the Seer, as 
in the list appears. His w. d. 21 Feb. 1645, and he m. 13 Aug. foil. 
Martha, wid. of Thomas Pigg, or Pidge ; and he d. 27 Dec. 1664. A 
very curious docum. his engagem. aft. 70 yrs. of age to keep the town

EBENEZER, Northampton, s. of William of the same, m. 1688, Sarah,

1733, aged 78. He d. 2 Aug. 1676, Farmer says, tho. a doubt arises as 
to the justness of the date, exc. for that of d. of his first b. ch. None of 
this name was ever heard of at C. a short time prior, certain, no house 
holder in 1658. Yet in Dec. 1676 a James is adm. of the ch. and freem. 
in May foil, and in Mar. of next yr. two Jameses are among the house-

holders, prob. mov. in from neighb. town, one of wh. was selectman 
1690, and ano. perhaps the Scotchman, whose s. was prob. the other, for 
his d. was 14 July 1690, and his w. Mary join, to the ch. 5 Aug. 1677, 
being bapt. that day, with her eight ch. James, Mary, Robert, Job, Abra 
ham, Isaac, Mercy, and Jane. The rec. of his f. s d. 1 Aug. 1688, calls 
him " sen. an aged Scotchman, above 70." Still ano. JAMES, prob. not 
of Charlestown, a soldier, was k. by the Ind. 4 Sept. 1675, near North- 
field, with his capt. Beers. JAMES, Norwalk 1671, of wh. we hear no 
more, exc. that he liv. at Rye nine yrs. aft. JOHN, Dorchester 1636, 
by some thot. not by me, perhaps s. of Richard the first, had sh. in 
1637, says Harris, of the Ids. in the neck, now South Boston; but he 
was rather of Roxbury, in my opinion, for there is rec. of his d. Mehit- 
able, b. 12 July 1638, and with w. Lydia, he belonged to Eliot s ch. of 
wh. he was an elder, was bred at Gonville and Caius Coll. Cambridge, 
where he took his A. B. 1627, freem. 22 May 1639, without the prefix 
of respect ; brot. from Eng. John, b. Mar. 1 632, perhaps had there 
other ch. or aft. coming here, may have had at Roxbury, or at Rowley, 
some not ment. ; went to be min. 1639 at Rowley, and was also the first 
town elk. there, where he had Lydia, b. 2 Feb. or 12 Apr. 1640, as the 
numerals are read both ways, contin. only two or three yrs. and he was 
invit. to go on the mission of 1642 to Virg. but declin. it, and soon aft. 
accept, the call to Yarmouth, Cape Cod ; yet he can hardly have been 
long resid. there. At Roxbury, again he was liv. had Susanna, b. 2 
May, by Yarmouth rec. but by R. 24, bapt. 29 Aug. 1647, who d. at 
Charlestown, unrn. 14 Oct. 1669; Eliz. 13 Oct. 1649 ; perhaps preach, 
where any tempo, want existed. His w. d. at Boston, 7 Aug. 1658, and 
he d. at Groton, 12 June 1663. His s. John took admin, of his est. 3 
July foil. His d. Mehitable m. John Crow of Yarmouth ; Lydia m. a 
Fish of Sandwich ; Faith m. 3 Aug. 1664, Nathaniel Winslow of Marsh- 
field, and d. 9 Nov. 1729 ; Eliz. m. Samuel Frost of Billerica ; Hannah 
m. 22 May 1666, Joseph Frost of Charlestown ; and Mary, the youngest 
I suppose, m. 8 Nov. 1677, John Whittemore of Charlestown. JOHX, 
Dover 1647, was, perhaps, of Kennebec 1665, as in Sullivan, 287, and 
sw. alleg. to the k. 1681. * JOHN, Yarmouth, s. of Rev. John, b. in Eng. 
m. 24 Dec. 1659, Margaret, d. of the first Josiah Winslow, had Lydia, 
b. 18 May 1661; Rebecca, 7 Nov. 1663; Hannah, 19 Apr. 1666; 
Margaret, 19 Apr. 1668; Mehitable, 14 May 1670; John, 20 Feb.

27 Oct. 1679 ; and John, again, 16 Oct. 1681. He was rep. 1671-82; 
and of his ds. we find m. of the first three, viz.: Lydia, 29 Dec. 1681,- 
to Jacob Cook ; Rebecca, 15 Feb. 1682, to Thomas Clark ; and Hannah, 
12 Feb. 1690, to Joseph Hall. JOHN, Rehoboth 1643, may have gone

from Dorchester, but not so prob. as that he was f. of John, Ichabod, 
and Robert, who all appear there in div. of Ids. 1668. His w. Eliz. was

Thompson. JOHN, Stamford 1662, s. of John of the same, had a ch. b. 
that yr. and was grant. Id. 1667, propos. for freem. 1669, and in 1687 
was rated for good est. But in 1697 he with his brs. Jonathan and 
Joseph, are enum. in the patent of Bedford, set off from S. to the N. Y. 
jurisdict. by the new line of boundary, wh. in 1701, left no Miller in S. 
Jonathan had been in 1672 a resid. of S. A John who came passeng. 
in the Speedwell, from London, 1656, aged 24, may have been that gent, 
of Yarmouth with whose yrs. he precise, agrees, or the inhab. of Cape 
Porpus 1680, wh. was rep. in 1685, at that Court held under auth. of 
Mass, by Presid. Danforth. JOHN, Springfield, freem. 1690. JOHN, 
Yarmouth, s. of John of the same, gr.s. of Rev. John, m. 23 Jan. 1707, 
Thankful Howes. JONATHAN, Springfield 1678. JOSEPH, came in the 
Hopewell, capt. Babb, 1635, from London, aged 15, perhaps s. of some 
one that had come bef. may have been of Dover 1647, and may be 
the same as the next. JOSEPH, Newbury, had w. Mary, who, Coffin 
says, had been wid. of capt. John Cutting, and d. 6 Mar. 1663, but in 
ano. place, 6 May 1664; and he d. 21 July 1681. JOSEPH, Marl- 
borough, freem. 1685, may be the man of Cambridge, who m. Mary, 
only d. of Walter Pope, had Thomas, b. 9 Apr. 1675 ; Samuel, 24 Sept. 
1678; and prob. Joseph of Newton, wh. d. 1711; and Jane, wh. d. 
1719. He d. 1697, and his wid. d. 1711. Perhaps he was s. of Rich

1729, and his wid. Mary d. at Pembroke, 15 Feb. 1772, " aged 94 yrs. 
wanting a few days," says fam. rec. prob. with some exagger. LAZARUS, 
Springfield, s. of Obadiah, took o. of alleg. 1678, as did at the same 
time, OBADIAH, and OBADIAH, jr. Of the former, were Lazarus, b. 
1655; Obadiah, 1658; and Joanna, 1659; his w. Joanna d. 1695. 
NICHOLAS, Plymouth, whose will of 24 Oct. 1665 bears the name 
Hodges, also, may therefore be the same person borne on the list of 
those able to bear arms, 1643. PAUL, Boston, by w. Eliz. had Sarah, b. 
21 Feb. 1692 ; and he liv. not long aft. RICHARD, Charlestown, came, 
perhaps, in 1637, and had gr. of a lot, it is said, in 1638 ; but as neither 
Frothingham, in the Hist, of the town, nor Budington, in that of the ch. 
ment. him, we may suppose he d. early. Elinor, who join, the ch. 4 
Nov. 1643, may have been bis w. or wid. She m. Henry Herbert, and 
d. 17 Nov. 1667 ; and her d. Hannah M. m. 17 June 1663, Nathaniel

May 1684, deac. Aaron Ludkin, long outliv. him, and d. 13 Dec. 1717. 
RICHARD, Kittery, had Samuel, Martha, and Mary, was d. bef. June 
1694 ; and his wid. Grace m. Christopher Benfield. Mary m. Ephraim 
Wentworth. But she may, as also the br. and sis. belong to Ephraim, as 
claim, by the Wentworths. ROBERT, a soldier under capt. Turner 1676, 
prob. present in the Falls fight, may have come from Rehoboth, certain, 
from some E. part. At R. he had Solomon, b. 6 Mar. 1674; Mary, 14 
June 1680. ROBERT, Boston, by w. Lydia had Lydia, b. 25 Jan. 1666 ; is 
possib. ihe same as the preced. SAMUEL, Springfield, freem. 1 690. SAMU 
EL, Rehoboth, m. 20 July 1682, Esther Bowen, had Esther, b. 4 Apr. foil, 
and, perhaps, he had sec. w. Rebecca, d. of Joseph Belcher. SAMUEL, 
Kittery, s. of Richard, or Ephraim. SYDRACH, Salem 1629, a cooper, 
prob. came with Higginson. THOMAS, Rowley 1646, had license to sell 
wines next yr. THOMAS, Boston, planter, had est. of a. three acres, adjoin, 
the town common, sold in 1668, to Thomas Deane. THOMAS, Spring 
field, m. 1649, Sarah, d. of Thomas Marshfield, had Sarah, b. 1650; 
Thomas, 1653; Samuel, 1655; John, 1657; Joseph, 1659, d. soon; 
Josiah, 1660; Deborah, 1662 ; Martha, 1664, d. soon; Martha, again, 
1665; Ebenezer, 1667; Meliitable, 1669 ; Joseph, again, 1671; and 
Experience, a d. 1673; and he was k. by the Ind. 5 Oct. 1675, as may 
have been his s. John next yr. in the gr. Falls fight. Five ds. and four 
s. were m. at S. THOMAS, Middletown, an early sett, by w. Isabel, wh. 
d. 1666, had Ann, that m. a. 1653, Nathaniel Bacon ; and when above 
56 yrs. old, took, 6 June 1666, sec. w. Sarah, d. of Samuel Nettleton of 
Branford, a girl, prob. not older than his d. Ann ; had Thomas, b. 6 
May 1666, wh. date proves that some interfer. of a judicial kind had 
been invok. or was aft.; Samuel, 1 Apr. 1668 ; Joseph, 21 Aug. 1670 ; 
Benjamin, 10 July 1672; John, 10 Mar. 1674; Margaret, 1 Sept. 1676; 
Sarah, 7 Jan. 1679 ; and Meliitable, posthum. 2.8 Mar. 1681. He d. 14 
Aug. 1680, and in his will, three days bef. calls hims. above 70. In the 
rec. Sept. foil, these ch. on the div. of est. are nam. Thomas, aged 14; 
Samuel, 12; Joseph, 10; Benjamin, 8; Margaret, 4; and Sarah, 1. 
His wid. m. a Harris, perhaps Thomas ; and Sarah m. Smith Johnson 
of Woodstock. THOMAS, Springfield, s. of Thomas of the same, was 
in the Falls fight 1676, m. Dec. 1681, Rebecca Leonard, d. of John, 
had Thomas and Rebecca, and d. 1690. THOMAS, Middletown, eldest s. 
of Thomas of the same, m. 1 688, Eliz. Turner, perhaps d. of Edward of 
the same, had Thomas, b. 1692; Abigail, 1694; and Eliz. 1695. His 
w. d. this yr. and he m. 1696, Mary Rowell, had Mary, 1697, wh. d. at 
16 yrs.; Stephen, 1699; James, 1700; Eliz. 1702; Eunice, 1704; 
Patience, 1707; and Deborah, 1708, wh. d. at 5 yrs.; and he d. 24 
Sept. 1727. Farmer had giv. one of this baptismal name at Dorchester^

but I am confident that it was mistak. by his informer for Millet. 
WILLIAM, Ipswich 1648, prob. rem. with earliest sett, to Northampton, 
by w. Patience had Mary ; Rebecca, d. young ; Patience, b. 15 Sept. 
1657 ; William, 30 Nov. 1659 ; Mercy, 8 Feb. 1662 ; Ebenezer, 7 June 
1664; Mehitable, 10 July 1666; Thankful, 25 Apr. 1669; and Abra 
ham, 20 Jan. 1672 ; was freem. 1690 ; and d. 15 July 1690. His will 
was of 1688, and his wid. d. 16 Mar. 1716, quite aged. Mercy m. 1687, 
John Fowler of Westfield. WILLIAM, Wethersfield, E. side of the riv. 
wh. bee. Glastonbury, s. of the preced. was a tanner, had decent est. of 
348. and d. 1705, leav. William, aged 11 ; John, 4 ; Jonathan, 1 ; and 
three ds. of wh. with ret. of the inv. the names and ages appear, Mary, 
8 ; Martha, 7 ; and Sarah, 6; all liv. in 1721, to claim portion as heirs 
of their gr.f. of cert, wild Ids. in Northfield. Chapin, 192, has a slight 
error in giv. him a br. John. For his w. s name, that is not ment. at 
Glastonbury, we may succeed in the rec. of Saybrook, by find, that he 
m. 19 Apr. 1693, Mary Bushnell, I suppose d. of John, and there had 
William, b. 9 Feb. foil. Seven of this name had, in 1834, been gr. at 
Harv. ten at Yale, and fifteen at other N. E. coll. 


and SAMUEL, were of Rehoboth 1690. THOMAS, Gloucester, a fisher 
man, or mariner, was selectman 1642, rem. to Newbury, had Ann, per 
haps b. there in Nov. of that yr. ; Rebecca ; and Eliz. aft. but did not sell 
his est. at G. bef. 1652. He made his will 30 Aug. 1653, and d. 2 days 
aft. at Boston. I think his d. Rebecca m. 27 May 1656, at Boston, 
Thomas Thorpe. Coffin supposes he was that mate of the Hector, 
ment. in Winth. I. 187 ; but I doubt it. W. Ann, and ch. Rebecca and 
Eliz. under 18 yrs. are ment. in the will. 

MILLET, JOHN, Gloucester, s. of Thomas of the same, m. 3 July 
1663, Sarah Leach, had John, b. 23 Oct. 1665, d. soon; Hannah, 9 
Mar. 1667; John, again, 22 Apr. 1669; Thomas, 23 Nov. 1671;

May 1G37, and his w. m. in Eng. was d. of John Greenoway. * Farmer * 
had giv. the two s. b. at D. to a suppositit. Miller ; but more curious was 
the error of Dagget (who usually is very scrupulous in correctness), for 
his Hist, of Attleborough gives all the childr. of Millet from our rec. to 
Willett, the capt. of Rehoboth, who was first mayor of New York, aft. 
its conq. As the mistake had not then been detected, Bliss foil, it in his 1JJL L 
Hist, of Rehoboth. *Wbe~Maietor his w.-dr-i-no^ascegt. THOMAS,

MILLING, SIMON, Watertown, an old man, had five ch. Simon, Rich

who was their mo. Perhaps she was d. and he had late. rem. thither,

MILLINGTON, JOHN, Windsor, m. 1668, Sarah Smith, rem. to Suffield,

haps 65, 70, and 3, for Stonington, but I doubt, some of the latter 
honors belong to his s. of the same name, and prob. Hinman, who makes 
him town elk. of Woodbury for 30 yrs. from 1674, makes the same mis 
take in pp. 54, 153, and 222. Thef. as the oldest gr.stone at Stonington

George R. M. H. C. 1778, is fixed in one generat. by most amiab. 
character, and for the succeed, by his works on our history. Twelve of 
the name had, in 1834, been gr. at Harv. and two at other N. E. coll.

MIRICK, or MYRICK, BENJAMIN, Charlestown, s. of John, by w.

Apr. 1661 ; Isaac, 6 Jan. 1665 ; Timothy, 28 Sept. 1666; and Susanna,

pleased us to learn the time of his d. JAMES, Newbury, s. of the preced. 
perhaps, yet not so indicat. by Coffin, who says, by w. Hannah he had 
Benjamin, b. 16 Apr. 1683; James, 16 July 1684; but in the former 
line he had him 16 Apr. 1683; and John, 10 Sept. 1686. JOHN, 
Charlestown, by w. Judith, unless this be, -as I suspect, error for Hope- 
still, had Hopestill, b. 20 Feb. 1643; Benjamin, 22 June 1644; and, 
perhaps, others. By sec. w. Hopestill (unless it be the first, as I suspect, 
for Hopestill M. is adm. of the ch. in Charlestown, 10 Sept. 1644), he had 
Sarah, 1 May 1657; Mercy, 30 Dec. 1658; and Abigail, bapt. 17 Feb.

substitutes for Deborah, Sarah, 6 Mar. 1695, add. that she m. Jonathan 
Fuller, with wh. Jackson, 280, concurs. He was freem. 1685, k. at 
Groton, by the Ind. 21 July 1706, unless Butler in his Hist, be mistak. 
as Jackson, 366, renders prob. That very careful collector, p. 96, refers 
to Penhallow for his extract; but in that writer I do not discov. the 
passage. Yet Homer, in his Hist, of N. had print, the same passage, 1 
Mass. Hist. Coll. V. 273. It is curious, that both the other sufferers at 
G. on that day, were of N. I suppose they were part of a garrison 
at G. But this John d. 11 July 1706, and had made his will 29 Apr. 
preced. "under a languish, sickness." Some mistake of the town was 
made. TIMOTHY, Newbury, youngest s. of the first James, m. 1696, 
Mary Lancaster, had Ezra, b. 31 Mar. 1697 ; Abigail, 26 Nov. 1698;

Aug. and accomp. his f. to Saybrook, thence to Wethersfield for some 
yrs. and Stamford, taught the sch. at Watertown, perhaps Dec. 1649, at 
least was invit. for that object, and soon aft. rem. to Stratford, where 
certain, he was in 1665, when he had two s. but who was the mo. or 
when the f. d. are all unkn. Cothren, 634, names four s. Matthew, 
John, Nathan, and Abraham, and tho. the d. of the f. name of the mo. 
or b. of either of the four is sought in vain, he permits us to infer that 
the two ment. in 1665 may have been Abraham and Matthew, but that 
John was older than Abraham. In Nov. 1675 he was entrust, by the

an occasion of blunder, even for so famous a man, whom he calls match 
less, he had on p. 166 of the same Book, told us he was b. 1624, at 
Halifax, in the W. riding of Yorksh. In 1662, he, with Gookin, were 
made first licensers of the press in Mass. He had good est. the inv.

early days of our country, has told of Mitchell, and the oversight of call, 
his f. Jonathan, instead of Matthew, by Sprague, in Annals of the 
American Pulpit, would seem too trivial to be noticed here, did not the 
minute statem. of his m. require correction : " Margaret S. daur. of his

truth. But as accura. relat. is always desira. it may be told, the only d.

1691. One other John, wh. came in the Susan and Ellen 1635, from 
London, aged 41, I am unable to dispose of. JONATHAN, Boston, 
youngest s. of Mrs. Ann, wid. of William Hibbins, the Assist, was, I 
infer, only tempo, resid. here, for the will of his mo. 16 June 1656, 
shortly bef. her execut. for the preposterous crime of witchcraft, wh. is

acknowledg. "the more than ordinary affection and pains of this one/

execrable fanaticism. She was prob. the richest person ever hanged in 
this part ; and the prejudice against witches long slumbered. JOSEPH,

ch. is giv. he was still assort, with Elder Brewster ; but by Gov. Brad 
ford s Hist. 451, we are taught that he m. and in 1651 had four or five 
ch. liv. as if he had lost one or more. It is vain to regret, that the Gov. 
did not mention the names of the ch. or the mo. Perhaps he rem. to 
one of the newer settlem. for Winsor s Duxbury tells that he sold his 
land 1637, and I am con vine. aft. long search, that he is the Richard by 
Deane, in Hist, of Scituate, call. Mann, as the other four passeng. with 
this bapt. name of Richard, were all then adult. See Mann. RICHARD, 
Cape Porpoise, now Kennebunk, had gr. of 400 acres in 1647, and less 
than 20 yrs. aft. was of Scarborough, had w. Bridget, became pauper 
1679, and d. 1681. See Southgate, 77. RICHARD, Salem 1642, to wh. 
says Felt, was made gr. of land 1638, freem. 28 Feb. 1643, tho. this 
man may have come in the Blessing, from London 1635, aged 20. He, 
or perhaps a s. of the same name, in a town office there, was liv. 1682 ; 
and in 1668 his name, with that of Richard jun. is sign, to the petitn. 
against imposts. RICHARD, Lynn, by w. Alice, wh. d. 29 May 1661, 
had Mary, b. 15 Jan. preced. and he m. 6 Nov. 1662, Eliz. Wildes. 
ROBERT, Boston 1654., tailor, rem. next yr. ROBERT, Boston, by w.

1632, perhaps, therefore, came in Nov. preced. in the Lion, had Samuel, 
bapt. 25 Dec. 1636; and Remember, 9 Dec. 1638. SAMUEL, Boston,

N. II. WILLIAM, York 1652, when he subm. to the Mass, governm. to 
1680, when he took the o. of alleg. to his Majesty. WILLIAM, Westerly

Thomas Howard, wh. was k. at the gr. battle of Philip s war, 19 Dec.

Amesbury 1670, a milit. officer, wh. m. as I presume, 7 Oct. 1673, Mary 
Veazie, perhaps d. of George of Dover. Seven of this name had, in 
1829, been gr. at Harv. six at Yale, six at Dart, and twelve at other 
N. E. coll. 

MOORES, EDMUND, Newbury, Coffin says, came 1640, aged 26, by w.

Sarah Savory, had Sarah, b. 15 Dec. 1663; and William, 10 Feb. 
1666; but an intermed. William was b. to wh. Coffin assigns impossib. 
date. SAMUEL, Newbury, m. 3 May 1653, Hannah Plummer, wh. d. 8 
Dec. 1654, and he m. 12 Dec. 1656, Mary Ilsley, d. of William of 
the same. 

MORE. See Moore. HENRY, Dorchester 1675, had supplied a substit. 
in the comp. of capt. Johnson, Dec. of that yr. as may be read in the 
list, print, in Geneal. Reg. VIII. 242, tho. his name is copied Mare. 
Many of the fam. have the name, as it were, interchangeable ; the same 
person on one page of the rec. spelling each way. 

MOREHOUSE, or MOOREHOUSE, JOHN, Fairfield, ensign in 1676. 
JONATHAN, Fairfield, m. Mary, d. of Edward Wilson of the same, bef. 
1684. SAMUEL, Fairfield, perhaps s. of Thomas, freem. 1 664, liv. 1670. 
THOMAS, Wethersfield 1640, perhaps was at Stamford next yr. but in 
1653 at Fairfield. 

MORFIELD, or MOORFIELD, JOHN, Hingham, came in the Diligent, 
1638, from old Hingham. 

232 MOR 

MORELL, WILLIAM, came in Sept. 1623, with Robert Gorges, sat 
down at Weymouth, but soon went to Plymouth, aft. Gorges left him, 
and home within a yr. His verses, Latin and translat. into Eng. show 
he was a fair scholar ; and his prudence was pro. by not producing the 
ecclesiast. commission he had to rule on this side of the water. 

MOREY, BENJAMIN, Wickford 1C74, was some relat. prob. of Isaac 
Heath of Roxbury, who names Mary and Benjamin in his will of Jan. 
1661. GEORGE, Duxbury 1640, d. that yr. may be the passeng. 1635, 
from London, aged 23, by the Truelove. FRANCIS, Salem 1686. 
JOHN, came in the Blessing, 1635, aged 19, from London, but I kn. no

Richard Foster, d. of Robert Bartlett. JOSEPH, Wickford 1674. NA 
THANIEL, Providence, m. July 1666, Joanna Inman, perhaps d. of the

Roger, b. 8 May 1649 ; Thomas, 19 July 1652 ; and Hannah, 28 Sept. 
1656 ; and he d. 5 Jan. 1668. ROGER, may have liv. at Milton, and, 
perhaps, m. Mary, d. of John Johnson, and had Abigail, bapt. at Rox 
bury, in her mo. s right, 8 Aug. 1680. THOMAS, Roxbury, m. 6 Sept. 
1673, Susanna, d. of the sec. Abraham Newell, had Thomas, b. 15 May

Dec. 1717; but I do not find the date of d. of w. Abigail m. 2 Apr. 
1697, Timothy Harris. 

MORGAN, BENNETT, Plymouth, came in the Fortune, 1621, but he

the time of his d. RICHARD, Dover 1659, was prob. of Exeter 1684. 
ROBERT, Saco 1636, may be he of Kennebeck 1665, nam. in Sullivan,

perhaps he means Catherine, wh. may have been his mo. in the will of 
Morley, made a week bef. his d. referred to as then dec. He also names 
in it sis. Ann Farmer. He gave to his wid. Constant, all his est. in 
N. E. and his Ids. and tenem. at Cheshunt, in Co. Herts, 0. E. In her

ISAAC, Charlestown, freem. 1682, of wh. it is very vexatious to be

had Daniel, b. 13 Feb. 1672; and Honor,! Apr. 1674. EDMUND, 
came in the Confidence, 1638, from Southampton. He was a car 
penter, of Dorsetsh. perhaps the parish of Kington Magna, near Shaftes- 
bury, but I hear nothing later of him. * EDWARD, Roxbury, m. 29 
Nov. 1655, Grace Burr, but in Boston rec. as cop. in Geneal. Reg. XL 
201, the name is giv. Bett, wh. seems less likely to be correct surname,

ISAAC, Roxbury, eldest s. of Edward the first, was a soldier in Johnson s

Nov\ 1634; and Esther, b. 6, bapt. 14 Mar. 1641 ; perhaps more, and 
d. 25 Apr. 1647. But the name appears Morus in Geneal. Reg. IX. 
170. * j| RICHARD, Boston 1630, came prob. in the fleet with Winth. as 
he and w. Lenora were very early of the ch. Nos. 64 and 5, and he was 
made freem. 18 May 1631, with the title of serj. and so perhaps a 
hired officer, bee. lieut. at Roxbury soon aft. and was rep. 1635, ar. co. 
1637, but favoring the cause of Rev. John Wheelwright, was disarm, 
and with that heresiarch went to Exeter, 1638. The name is first on 
our ch. rec. writ. Maurice, and when, 6 Jan. 1639, dismiss, was gr. to 
Wheelwright and eight others, includ. him, " unto the ch. of Christ at 
the falls of Paschataqua, if they be rightly gathered and ordered," the 
spelling is Morrys. It is wrong in Drake s diligent Hist. 224, as it was 
first in Belknap, wh. Farmer did not correct. RICHARD, Portsmouth, 
R.I. 1643, then among the freem. 1655, seems to nie the same as preced.

LIAM, Portsmouth, R. I. 1655, was, perhaps, br. of Richard, may have 
liv. 1671, at Westerly. WILLIAM, Charlestown 1658, perhaps of Bos

without a date, and the assiduous genealogist of the name adds that he 
was b. a. 1680, while on the same page he makes the f. d. 1677, wh. is 
right, for the wid. m. 5 July 1678, John Fay, wherefore I doubt, unless 
the Morse genealog. be wrong here. JOSEPH, Medfield, s. of John first

or wfln, is uncert. ; freem. 8 Oct. 1 640 ; d. says the Geneal. 20 June 
1654; but either that date or one of his will is wrong, as pub. in 
Geneal. Reg. V. 299, where the test, is 2 Dec. 1654. I presume the d. 
of his s. Joseph was intend, for June. Farmer says he d. 3 days aft. 
and agrees with town rec. therein. It gives w. Eliz. all his est. but aft. 
her life to be div. among ch. John, Daniel, and Mary, w. of Samuel 
Bullen, beside Ann, wid. of Joseph, for his childr. equal, and no more ; 
so that I doubt the other names giv. in the Geneal. may not be all 
correct, especially as Abigail is said, therein, to m. Daniel Fisher, the 
speaker, whose w. was, I think, Abigail, d. of Thomas Marrett. Geneal. 
Reg. IX. 141, gives the inv. by wid. Eliz. 10 July 1654. Perhaps the 
dates are confus. by the numerals for mos. and days in one of the

young scapegrace was sentenced to be hanged, but happily pardoned, bef. 
the gr. adversary s full triumph, was gather, by Coffin in his Hist, of N.

MORTON, CHARLES, Charlestown, eldest s. of Rev. Nicholas, wh. d. at

Morton, in Co. Notts, where was the seat of Thomas Morton, says 
Farmer, seer, of Edward III. wash. 1626, in Cornwall, bred at Wadham 
Coll. Oxford, and sett, at Blisland, in his native Co. as a min. thence 
eject, in 1662, he liv. sev. yrs. at Newington Green, near London, and 
was whoUy engag. in teach, a private semin. until 1686, when he emb. 
for Boston, and 5 Nov. of this yr. was ord. at C. His neph. Charles, 
an M. D., came with him, but went home in July of next yr. ; ano.

come a yr. earlier than his uncle. An aged wid. Ann, says the rec. d. 
20 Dec. 1690; but she may not have been relat. Some reports till 
circulate a. the design of mak. him head of our college, but there can 
be no founda. for the idea, that such an inducem. caus. his com. for 
Increase Mather was chos. near, a yr. bef. his leav. Eng. and some 
jealousy was rais. against him for teach, matters of high rank in the 
college curriculum. Vice President he was indeed chos. being the first 
in such rank, and, I suppose, the last who acted under a presid. officer, 
for when the Inst. was reliev. from the rule of Mather, and nobody was 
to be found fit to be his successor, with condition of resid. on inadequ. 
salary, Willard was made real head of the Coll. with the inferior title 
that Morton had enjoy, yet not held to resid. M. was too old to succeed 
Mather, when this latter was sent to Eng. and d. some yrs. bef. the office 
was vacat. by him. It is rather strange, that, his d. wh. was on 11 
Apr. 1698, by Penhallow, who was his pupil in Eng. and came over 
with him, is mark. 1696, see 2 Mass. Hist. Coll. I. 162, and by Dr. 
Bartlett, in the next Vol. of Coll. 171, noted 1706, aged 80. * 

Plymouth, s. of George, came with his f. in the Ann, 1623; but Judge 
Davis, in the preface to the Memorial, says, he was b. on the passage. 
Cotton s Plymouth ch. hist, in 1 Hist. Coll. IV. 126, marks his d. 7 Sept. 
1693, in 70th yr. of his age, wh. implies that he was b. aft. the arr. of the 
sh. in July. Perhaps the differ, may be explain, by error in Cotton s 
use of the Latin word, as very frequent, occurs in careless mod. writers.

he is presum. to be the Editor of the valua. tract, usual, call. Mourt s 
Relation. See Dr. Young, Chron. of Pilgr. 113. Dr. Felt, Ann. of 
Salem, I. 228, differs from Dr. Young, and speaks of Mourt as visiting 
Naumkeag in 1621 ; but his addr. "to the reader" seems to imply of 
necessity, that he had never visited our country, tho. he hoped to. 
GEORGE, Plymouth, perhaps s. of the preced. at least, how the rec. of P. 
that ment. d. of Phebe, w. of George, 22 May 1663, can otherwise be

1658, tho. we may be confident that he was b. several yrs. bef. and I 
should prefer to make his day of bapt. 24 Jan. 1647 ; beside Sarah, wh.

goes, 1663, and d. f2 May 1672. As Mary is among ch. memb. 1647,

May 1695; and he d. 23 Dec. 1737. His wid. d. 18 Apr. 1747, aged 


83 yrs. SAMUEL, a soldier on Conn. riv. under capt. Turner in 1676, 
was from Braintree, s. of Henry, m. 18 Apr. 1678, Abigail, d. of James 
Penniman, and, perhaps liv. in New Hampsh. in 1690, pray, for jurisdict. 
of Mass. WALTER, Portsmouth, came early in 1630, by the Warwick, 
as Gov. of the planta. of Gorges and Mason, went home in Aug. 1633, 
sail, from Boston 13th of that mo. aft. being above ten days there. 
Both his coming and going, therefore, from this shore, is to a sober man 
satisfact. proof of the falsity of the gr. Ind. deed to Wheelwright of 17 
May 1629, seven yrs. bef. the grantee came, and one yr. bef. this witness 
arr. Much stronger, even, is the evid. of forgery of a letter, pretend, to 
be of Neal and Wiggin, to the patentee John Mason, 13 Aug. 1633, wh. 
was, by the managers of the fraud, intend, for a buttress of the splendid 
grant. That letter purports to be writ, at Northam, wh. was the 
complimenta. name some yrs. later, for Dover, on the Piscataqua, when 
we kn. from p. 107 of Vol. I. of the Hist, by Gov. Winth. that on that 
same day Neal was at Boston, and had been above a week, with a comp. 
of eight friends, to embark in the Elizabeth Bonadventure, that sail, for 
Eng. on 15 of that month; and from p. 115 of the same Vol. that 
Wiggin was in London on the date of that forgery of the preposter. 
letter, embarking at Gravesend for Salem, the very day that Neal left 
Boston for Eng. In the assiduity of Farmer no further acco. is reach, 
but he thinks WALTER of N. H. 1660, who by w. Mary had Samuel, b. 14 
June 1661, and was in 1673, lieut. in the comp. of wh. James Pendleton 
was capt. might have been his s. He join, most of his neighb. in desir.

to be whip, twelve stripes. Yet these perverse worshippers have no 
small claims on our kind regard, at least for their long contin. lives, both 
acting in 1696, and he in 1705, beside good success in rear. ch. for we 
see by deed of 1 Jan. 1730, that Anthony, Isaac, Thomas, Rebecca, 
Hannah, Eliz. Mary, Abigail, and Rachel should enjoy the est. of their

Seven of this name had been gr. in 1834 at Harv. and twelve at Yale. * 
NEWGATE, or NEWDIGATE, * JOHN, Boston 1632, merch. b. 1580, in 
Southwark, near London bridge, brot. w. Ann with childr. b. in Eng. 
here had Hannah, b. 1, bapt. 6 Aug. 1633, d. at 5 mos. ; Hannah, again,

was freem. 4 Mar. 1635, constable, rep. 1638, oft. a selectman, d. 1665. 


Of his ch. we can hardly speak with certainty. Prob. Joshua, \vh. d. 12 
Nov. 1658, at Boston, was the oldest, and h. of that Eliz. N. call, on 
adm. to our ch. 30 Mar. 1634, " d.-in-law to our sis. Ann N." Eliz.

22 Feb. 1653, Simon Lynde, was nam. in the will of her mo. 6 Aug. 

1676, pro. 8 Apr. 1679 ; but her Eliz. and Nathaniel Lynde, and 
Nathaniel N. of London are ment. His will, of 25 Nov. 1664, with 
codic. of 8 May foil, is in Geneal. Reg. XIII. 333. NATHANIEL^ Bos

some of the descend, write the name Newdigate, as was here done 

NEWGROVE, JOHN, Dover 1648. 

NKWHALL, ANTHONY, oft. confus. with Newell, Lynn 1636, some

1677, d. same day ; and by ano. w. it is said, had Hannah, 6 Mar. 1680 ;

proximity of the two Johns and Eliz. Sarah m. 3 Mar. 1680, Timothy 
Breed. A third JOHN, of Lynn, m. 18 June 1677, Esther, d. of Wil

few days; Jonathan, 25 Dec. 1681; Sarah, again, 23 Jan. 1683; and 
Jeremiah, 12 Feb. 1685. One of these Johns was freem. 1684, and two 
in 1691, of wh. one is mark. sen. and the other ens. But Lewis pro 
vides for a JOHN, of Lynn, much earlier, s. of Thomas, b. in Eng. to m. 
10 Apr. 1646, Sarah Lewis. Some doubt rises in my mind bee. I kn. 
not whose d. she was or could be. JOSEPH, Lynn, freem. 1690, had 
Jemima, b. Dec. 1678 ; and Thomas, 16 Jan. 1681. He was, perhaps, 
s. of the first Thomas, and may be that Joseph who perish, in the gr. 
snow storm 29 and 30 Jan. 1705. Jemima m. Benjamin Very of Salem. 
NATHANIEL, Lynn, s. of Thomas, is prob. the freem. of 1691, call,

expedit. of Phips against Quebec, 1690, in Geneal. Reg. IX. 354, but 
the more correct roll in XIII. has it not.

s. of Antipas, a physician, m. Ruth, eldest d. of Rev. John Emerson, had 
issue, but details are unkn. JOHN, a serj. in capt. Turner s comp. 1G76,

at least, a John N. junr. was there 1679, owning commons. JOHN, 
Oyster Bay, L. I. 1685, may have been a propr. at New Haven 1669,

George Shove, who had m. Hopestill Newman, sis. of Noah. RICH 
ARD, New Haven 1656, possib. a s. of the Gov. had Samuel, b. that yr. ; 
John ; Sarah; both bapt. 1665, tho. the officer wh. kept that unsatisfact. 
rec. gives no day, nor mo. ; and Mercy, b. 7 Dec. 1665, bapt. prob. 28

being giv. in Geneal. Reg. IX. 361) 1646; went home bef. 1660, it is

in his 17th yr. but on proceed. A. B. 17 Oct. of that yr. is titled in 
Wood s Fasti, I. 392, of St. Edmund Hall, had a very small benefice, 
1625, at Midhope, part of the parish of Ecclesfield, in the W. Riding of 
Yorksh. to wh. his successor was presented ten yrs. aft. He came to 
N. E. perhaps in 1636, tho. Eliz. aged 24, who may. have been his w. 
or sis. came in the James from London 1635 ; yet Mather, III. c. 15, 
who, in three whole folio pages of double column, by his multifarious 
nothingness, gives less than six lines of facts, makes him come in 1638, 
spend a yr. and a half at Dorchester, five yrs. at Weymouth, and nine 
teen at R. Dr. Harris did not find his name at Dorchester, but he was 
adm. freem. 13 Mar. 1639 (yet casual, as is plain, without prefix of 
respect), no doubt then of Weymouth, where his d. Hope was b. 29 
Aug. or Nov. 1641, as we believe discordant rec. in Geneal. Reg. VIII. 
348, or IX. 171; and, perhaps, other ch. Greatly does he deserve

by light of burning pine knots. He suffer, more than his temper could 
bear, by the spreading of the antipaedobapt. in his diocese, and d. 5

For those who have not easy access to the Magn. Dr. Allen furnishes 
the wondrous story of Newman s predict, of the hour of his own d. with 
happy exactness, and Dr. Eliot, in his Biog. Diet, has fully vindica. 
Mather from the discredit that might be attach, to his page by this. 
Now to prove what Eliot tells of the acco. being sent to Eng. as well as 
spread thro, our country, no doubt (when the immortal author of the 
Magnalia was but few mos. old) we may look into the Diary of Samuel 
Pepys, and find the " good story of Mr. Newman " to be matter of

may well seem to be the man of Fail-field, buying Id. bef. 1653, perhaps 
reaching that final resid. aft, a tempora. one at Wethersfield, and the

tenary, can easi. be ascertain, at Salem, to a high probabil. or perhaps 
certain, as his descend, have confid. that he was b. 1599 ; for he sw. 24

How to construe the dark sayings of Cotton Mather in Book IV. 129 of 
the Magn. without indulg. of some suspicion against 0. puzzled the late 
Presid. Quincy in "his great Hist, of the Univ. and when we rememb. 
that a very short interval aft. the d. of Oakes, the greater Mather was 
call, to stand in his place, and that the lesser Mather was under Hoar 
and Oakes at the time of their academic, rule, we may suppose that the 
oracle was, as often happened, ambiguously inspired. Some tenderness 
may, however, be yield, to the Ecclesiast. Histor. for he did not feel as 
if call, by a Ct. of justice, under oath, to tell the whole truth. Silence 
was safety to hiras. and superiors. What the learned s. of Increase 
meant by his phrase, about new election, 2 Feb. 1680, is of little conse 
quence, for the presid. d. 25 July 1681, under 50 yrs. of age. Some 
obscurity also attaches to our kn. of his fam. Prob. he m. in Eng. and 
there had ch. two, three, four, or more ; but when b. who was the mo. 
how many were brot. over the ocean, whether his w. d. bef. or aft. are 
unansw. questions. That his d. Hannah m. 2 Sept. 1680, Rev. Samuel 
Angier, and was his only d. seems clear ; but the town rec. helps to incr. 
our vexation, as it tells the d. of Lawrence 0. bachelor of arts, 13 June 
1679, aged 18, and of Urian 0. 3 Nov. foil, for we kn. tliere was no 
such bach, and are left .to conject. that the honora. title belongs to Urian, 
H. C. 1678, who d. at 22 yrs. that Lawrence was an undergrad. and that 
both were s. of the presid. Of the gr. of 1679, Edward, too, doubts on 
more than one point would at this late day be not easy of solution.

the old war. Yet he had in 1G66 int. in the Ids. at Newtown, L. I. and 
some yrs.-bef. his d. liv. at West Chester that was then thot. to belong 
to Conn. Of the time of his m. or name of his w. inq. has been fruit 
less ; yet his descend, in our age, has connd. that he had five ch. at least, 
John, Daniel, Eliz. Priscilla, and ano. ch. he calls his " oldest d." 
SAMUEL, Windsor, s. of the first John of the same, by w. Mary had 
Samuel, b. 19 Oct. 1684; Rebecca, 20 Apr. 1687. His w. d. 3 Aug. 
1690; and by Abigail perhaps had Rebecca, 9 July 1691; but very 
confus. is the statem. in Stiles, 729-30. THOMAS, Charlestown 1644, 
freem. 10 May 1648, by w. Hannah had Sarah, b. 29 Mar. 1647; 
Thomas, 26 June 1649 ; Mary, 11 Mar. 1652 ; ano. ch. 30 Apr. 1654; 
and Martha, 8 Oct. 1656; beside John, bapt. 19 Feb. 1660. He liv. on 
Maiden side, there had w. Sarah, who, in Oct. 1651, stood up manfully, 
with her sisterhood, in defence of Rev. Mr. Matthews against the Gen. 
Court. In Feb. 1662, he and his w. were rec. into the ch. of Charles- 
town, by dismiss, from M. but prob. he had a hankering for heresy, as he 
next yr. united with Gould, as a Bapt. having embraced the opinions of 
that sect as early as 1658, tho. their ch. was not formed until May 1665.

1639, perhaps br. of Richard, with far better est. ; counted a fam. of six

Frocliswerd his w. had Recompense, b. 26 May 1644, a. "six o clock 
P. M." H. C. 1661, at Braintree had Hannah, 24 Aug. 1646 ; Bezaleel,

Fredeswith and in Prov. rec. Freesweed, had Joseph, b. 6 Apr. 1652; 
and Jonathan, 16 Nov. 1656. He was a merch. and he d. a. mid. life; 
his inv. of 29 Apr. 1662 shows over 1000 ; well for that time. His 
wid. m. John Mulford of South Hampton, Yorksh. E. Riding, and in 
1670 sold to Rev. Antipas Newman of Wenham, that 110 acres granted 
to O. Ano. 0. there was, unhappi. at Salem, Sarah, impris. at Boston 
from 7 Mar. to 10 May 1692, on charge of witchcraft, wh. was not brot. 
to trial bee. she d. in gaol. How tenderly alleviat. was the suffer, of her 
latest hours, is nowhere told. She was, perhaps, w. of that WILLIAM of 
Salem vill. freem. 1690. WILLIAM, Braintree, had Bezaleel, b. 1650. 
WILLIAM, Newtown, L. I. 1656-86. Riker. WILLIAM, New Haven,

from Andover, in Hampsh. Eng. where he was b. 23 July 1595, wh. in 
the open, line of his will of 12 Apr. 1650, pro. 25 Nov. 1651, he plain,

preced. b. in Eng. oft. a selectman, was capt. and rep. 1666, 9, 89, and 
90, with high popularity, as he had been imprison, by Andros. He m. 
at Haverhill, 15 Nov. 1653, Mary, d. of Robert Clements, had John, b. 
3 Sept. 1654; Mary, 27 Nov. 1656; Timothy, 10 Aug. 1659; Lydia,

she saved her life by confess, of impossib. guilt. See Abbot, Calef, and 
Hutchinson, II. 31. Charming page is that in 1 Mass. Hist. Coll. VII. 
241, wh. gives her indictm. the gist of it being, that she " a covenant 
with the devil did make, and signed the devil s book, and took the devil 
to be her God, and consented to serve and worship him, and was bapt. 
by the devil, and renounc. her former Christian bapt. and promised to 
be the devil s, both body and soul forever, and to serve him." I rejoice, 
that, aft. the evaporation of the infernal spirit, she had energy eno. to 
acknowledge, 19 Oct. 1692, bef. the venerab. Increase Mather (not Cot 
ton M. as in Geneal. Reg. XIII. 118, told) the falsehood of her confess, 
for surely most of the charges in that indictm. would be better laid 
against the judges in the oyer and terrniner. They served, if they did 
not worship the devil, and took him to be their God, whether they signed 
his book or not. Had that book been brot. into Court, as it ought to 
have been, or the governm. call, on to show at least, what means they 
had used to get the precious rec. to the open view of the jury, the name 
of William Stoughton, and more than one of his assoc. judges, I doubt 
not, as clear, as that of Mary Osgood, would have flared in the sapphire 
blaze. Hard is it to decide, whether prisoners or judges were under 
stronger delusion. Sarah d. 22 Apr. 1G67 ; Hannah d. 3 Aug. 1674.

precision makes me suspect, that he was of the comp. or guild of the

to his sis. Mary Shore, aunts Sarah Phillips, and Eliz. Greenough, cous. 
Eliz. Greenough, and others. Farmer was led into a striking error in 
giving from Boston rec. death of William P. 11 Nov. 1653, by omission 
in his correspondent s transcr. of the words that precede, for the orig. is 
thus : " Susan, the d. of Edward Breck of Dorchester, serv. to Mr. 
William Paddy, d. 11 Nov. 1653." In h is Appendix he made stranger 
explanat. wh. would have been avoid, had the rec. been scrutiniz. 
More preposterous than either of these two mistakes was the supposit. 
started some 20 yrs. since, on finding a with his name and descript. 
laid in the common sewer, near the old town ho. in State str. that this 
was the spot of his interm. as if so excellent a pub. officer had been bur. 
in the highway. It had, prob. been reject, for its coarseness. To cor 
rect ano. error wh. comprehends sev. is* almost indispensa. needful, on 
account of the authority it might carry from its place in 3 Mass. Hist. 
Coll. VII. 286, where upon the first described of the Portraits of the

from WILLIAM, s. of the preced. being in Col. Rec. designat. as s.-in-law
